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 their psychiatric staff.
Adult Access is a program specifically designed to provide services to individuals in need of immediate brief therapeutic case management and brief psychotherapy. Access is an intensive community and office based service with a goal of crisis stabilization and needs assessment. If services are needed beyond the time frame for Access, referrals are made to long-term services programs.
