Crisis Stabilization Unit

Staff with the Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) provide emergency psychiatric and crisis stabilization services that include intervention, medication administration, consultation with significant others and outpatient providers, as well as linkage and/or referral to follow-up care and community resources. The team also offers psychiatric consultation over the phone to hospital emergency room staff and other County-operated and contracted program staff by request. The primary goal of the CSU is to refer clients to the most appropriate, non-hospital setting when indicated or to facilitate admission to psychiatric inpatient units when the need for this level of care is present.
