Universal Community Behavioral Health has contracted with Centre County MH/MR since 1995 to develop a premier crisis intervention service. Since their inception, our crisis services have grown to provide inclusive services that are client-centered, promote the individual’s path towards recovery, collaborate with mental health professionals and community partners, advocate for a positive resolution and assist the individual through the crisis. Our crisis services support the communities we serve by being active in suicide prevention efforts, public education and outreach.
Crisis intervention at The Meadows provides immediate access to assessment, counseling, consultation and referral services by telephone or face-to-face. The goal of these services is to assist the consumer in resolving the difficulty as quickly as possible and in a way which would not only reduce the necessity for more restrictive treatment services but which also encourages the psychological and emotional wellness of the patient. Crisis management and crisis counseling services are available through 24-hour crisis hotlines. Mobile crisis intervention and crisis center walk-in visits may also be available.
