Emergency Mental Health Services (EMHS)

Emergency Mental Health Services is a 24-hour service for all ages. Emergency services are evaluative in nature and designed to create an accurate diagnosis, to provide brief intervention when appropriate, and to establish follow-up care either in the community or through an inpatient delivery system. These services are provided at the Duddie Massad Emergency and Trauma Center on the University Campus. Evaluation teams via Community HealthLink (CHL) Youth Mobile Crisis Intervention (YMCI) are also deployed to travel to other community sites, including schools, for emergency evaluations and intervention.
