Crisis Intervention

The Meadows/UCBH contracted with Centre County MH/MR in 1995 to develop a premier crisis intervention service. Since its inception, our crisis services have grown to provide inclusive services that are client centered, promote the individual’s path towards recovery, collaborative 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, Crisis Intervention Team and police alliance, public education and outreach.

Crisis Intervention at The Meadows/UCBH 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 / 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. Please visit the county pages below for more information.
