You can’t plan for a mental health crisis – but we do. Behavioral Health Access Centers provide 24/7 psychiatric and crisis care for individuals 18 years and older and are ideal for patients experiencing a behavioral health crisis without an accompanying medical emergency.

Access Centers provide crisis treatment, observation, and fast access to mental health treatment from licensed behavioral health professionals, ensuring placement in the appropriate level of care and reducing overall costs. It's a more efficient and cost-effective model of care for everyone.



Behavioral Health Access Centers operate similarly to an emergency room. They provide simple access to a medical screening exam and mental health evaluation. Doing so allows our caregivers to identify resources for whatever the situation may be, allowing patients to find an appropriate level of care.
