SMH Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (Psych ED)
Our Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) consists of the Emergency Unit, extended observation beds, the Mobile Crisis Team and four crisis beds in the community, which are accessed via the Mobile Crisis Team. The primary purpose of this unit is to provide individuals with a psychiatric evaluation to determine if inpatient hospital intervention is needed, and if so, to facilitate admission to an inpatient psychiatric unit. All individuals seen in the CPEP Emergency Unit are evaluated by a psychiatrist, in addition to psychiatric nursing and clinical social work staff members.
