The CMHA-CEI Crisis Services Department provides 24 hour, seven day per week, triage for persons experiencing a psychiatric emergency. The Crisis Services Department provides evaluation and screening for inpatient psychiatric hospital admission for persons with Medicaid or those who are uninsured. Persons with commercial mental health coverage are typically directed to contact their health plan for authorization should psychiatric hospitalization be necessary. Crisis Services staff may assist with various aspects of the voluntary or involuntary psychiatric admission process, and may provide limited assistance to family members or others seeking to have a person evaluated for hospitalization. Crisis Services staff work closely with the Adult Mental Health Services Crisis Recovery Team to seek alternatives to psychiatric hospitalization if and when such would be reasonable. The Crisis Services Department evaluates persons who are medically stabilized first, and staff work closely with area hospital emergency departments to ensure persons are suitable candidates for mental health evaluation and that a medical condition does not result in an inaccurate mental health diagnosis.
Cost for Services
Our services may be covered by health insurance, including Medicaid. Fees are assessed based on the client’s ability to pay.
