What Is A Mental Health Assessment?
The Assessment Process
The assessment is not a psychiatric evaluation. At Sana Behavioral Health, we make the admission process as easy, and seamless, as possible. A nurse will interview you and conduct a brief physical exam to help us know more about you as we develop your care plan.
Discussing how you’re feeling emotionally, and physically, helps us to efficiently identify which program and services best meets your needs. Feel free to bring a family member or friend, as this may be helpful for support and will assist the assessment process. Our board-certified psychiatrist oversees and directs psychiatric treatment based on your needs, and our internal medicine physician oversees your medical needs providing a coordinated, comprehensive plan of action.
Sana Behavioral Health assessments are free, confidential and help determine whether you need to be hospitalized or receive a different type of service. Our staff is bilingual, and we provide TTY services for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
How do I schedule a Mental Health Assessment?
Simply call our 24/7 patient care line: 725-605-0310. An intake professional will take your call, ask a series of questions and listen to determine if a face-to-face assessment is the appropriate next step. Our goal is to meet with you as soon as possible. If needed, we can provide a mobile assessment or use telemed services for same day assessments. Veteran and First Responder referrals are welcomed.All assessments are done in a secured, safe environment and are kept confidential.
How long do Mental Health Assessments Take?
Expect an assessment to take 30-45 minutes. If it is determined that hospitalization is the best course of treatment, 1 ½ hours for the admission process should be expected.
