About the team.
Our Crisis Services division consists of three Crisis programs that provides support to clients experiencing a self-identified crisis. The Walk in Clinic (WIC) is a 24/7 program that allows clients to receive crisis-based services, information, and referrals, as appropriate, on a walk-in basis. The Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) is a 24-hour 16-bed facility that offers intensive behavioral health crisis intervention for up to five days. The Respite program is 14-day designed to allow an individual experiencing crisis to stabilize, resolve problems, and link with resources for ongoing support in a safe environment.
Our team consists of Psychiatrists, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners, RNs, LPNs, Medical Assistants, Licensed and Unlicensed Therapists, Case Managers, Milieu Counselors, and Peer Support Specialists. Nursing responsibilities include performing nursing assessments, passing medications, leading therapeutic groups, and collaborating with members of our multi-disciplinary team while following clients’ treatment plans.
