Psychiatric Emergency

Psychiatric Emergency

For adults who are in immediate crisis, TMC Behavioral Health offers a 12-bed Emergency Department (BHED).

BHED is designed to provide accessible, professional, cost-effective services to individuals in psychiatric and/or substance abuse crisis 24 hours a day.

Clients are immediately evaluated by a psychiatrist, a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP), and a registered nurse in the triage area. A full evaluation is conducted to determine treatment. If in-patient treatment is deemed necessary we assist with that process. If no hospital stay is needed, the patient will be provided with referrals to outpatient services. QMHPs assist clients with crisis and therapeutic interventions, obtaining resources for treatment and communicate with other treatment providers to ensure continuity of care.
