CPEP offers 24-hour services in the Psychiatric Emergency Room. Individuals are assessed first by a nurse, then a physician, and treatment decisions are made regarding care. Based on each individual's needs, treatment is initiated and a referral for additional outpatient services is made, or the patient is admitted to one of the inpatient behavioral health units. The CPEP also offers an extended observation unit for patients who need crisis stabilization without requiring inpatient admission. Pastoral care and specialized care for those who are mentally and physically disabled is also available. Patients who need urgent care but not admission can walk in for an evaluation. Family members are counseled and connected with services as well.

Services Offered:Mental Health Care and Counseling
Target Groups(By Need):Mental Illness / Emotional Disabilities
