Brief Urgent Care services are services that are short-term. They provide stabilization to clients that help them get back to their community and connected to community services as soon as possible. These community-based services programs include Adult Access, Children’s Access and our Street Interventionist Program.
Another Brief Urgent Care Program at WCMHS is our Crisis Bed, Home Intervention (HI). HI is a residential crisis bed program for adults, with on-site psychiatric, nursing and mental health services. The program is located in a residential area rather than in a medical facility or hospital, and can provide one-on-one support services to persons in a state of high need. Citizens are provided with 24 hours per day, 7 days per week support from over 20 staff. Employee work is overseen by a Master’s Level Nurse and the Medical Director of WCMHS and his psychiatric staff.
How Do I Access Services?
Start by calling (802) 229-0591 to speak to one of our friendly Intake Coordinators. You will be asked what kind of services you are seeking and depending on your answer (children’s services, adult mental health services) you will be directed to the correct person. You may also be asked some routine questions and to schedule a brief interview to begin the process of accessing services. If you are not sure what services you are seeking, or what programs we offer, WCMHS will work with you to help you determine and access the services you may need.
