For Those We Serve

Walk-In Crisis and Psychiatric Aftercare

At a Walk-In Crisis and Psychiatric Aftercare site an adult, adolescent, or family in crisis can receive immediate care. The care may include an assessment and diagnosis for mental illness, substance abuse, and intellectual/developmental disability issues as well as planning and referral for future treatment. Other services may include medication management, outpatient treatment, and short-term follow-up care. Psychiatric aftercare may also assist consumers returning to the community from a state psychiatric hospital or alcohol and drug abuse treatment center until they are established with a local clinical provider.
