?Mental Health nurses staffed in the emergency department provide mental health assessment in consultation with the on call psychiatrist.
Upon assessment, referrals may include community follow up, Assertive Home Based Treatment, or admission to Magnolia House or our inpatient unit.
Professionally trained volunteers can provide free, confidential, non-judgmental, emotional support if you are experiencing feelings of distress or despair.
If you feel you might be in danger of hurting yourself or someone else, you should call 911 or go to a hospital emergency department right away.
