Emergency Psychiatric Services at Prevail Recovery Center



Psychiatric  Services

At Prevail Recovery Center, we fully understand the importance of psychiatric emergencies and mental health crises as requiring an immediate, empathetic, and effective response in treatment. Our Emergency Psychiatric Services are here to give urgent care to people who are experiencing severe mental health crises where seeking treatment in a regular outpatient way is not possible. This guide provides information on why timely intervention is necessary, the type of services that we offer, and our approach in stabilizing patients during critical times.

For a mental health emergency, immediate intervention and stabilization services are needed, including crisis intervention techniques and emergency psychiatric care.


Need for Mental Health  Emergency Psychiatric Services

Mental health emergencies can happen suddenly and unexpectedly and can frighten not only the individual who experiences them, but also their loved ones. They can include bouts of severe depression, suicidal ideation, psychosis, or other acute behavioral disturbances, each of which poses an immediate risk to the individual or others. Emergency psychiatric services aim to provide immediate assessments and stabilization in order to prevent harm, manage symptoms, and begin the recovery process. Crisis intervention is defined as the use of purposeful and immediate support in managing these emergencies by healthcare teams and, sometimes, emergency rooms to manage the situation and ensure the safety and well-being of the individual.

Situations of everyday life that may require emergency psychiatric services include:

  • Threats to harm themselves or others
  • Severe psychotic symptoms, including hallucinations or delusions
  • Extreme panic attacks
  • Overwhelming or incapacitating depression or anxiety
  • Family members are often critical in detecting the signs of a mental health crisis. They can play a significant role in initiating the necessary interventions, providing short-term relief, and being involved in planning care and support needed for recovery.

  2. Inpatient Stabilization: We have stabilization services for people who need immediate, intensive treatment. Included in this treatment are services for medication management, mental health professional monitoring, and support through treatment interventions in an environment that is safe and controlled.

Mobile crisis teams are further available, providing crisis management services for individuals with mental health, substance abuse, or developmental disabilities 24/7. These teams meet with individuals in safe locations to offer them support.
  4. Follow-Up Care and Planning: After stabilization, we concentrate on developing a follow-up care plan which is aimed at the longer-term needs of the individual. The follow-up care plan can include outpatient therapy, support groups, and medication management, among the range of services provided at our center.
