The Focus of Treatment
The focus is on enhancing the patient's skills and resources to foster personal dignity, control, self-reliance and quality of life. Under the medical supervision of a psychiatrist, the multi-disciplinary treatment team focuses on the individual patient, developing a treatment and discharge plan that includes recommendations for after care, follow up and community resource integration. Individuals are treated safely and effectively, through the evaluation and resolution of crisis situations that have occurred before admission.
The Referral Process
Referrals can be accommodated on a 24 hour basis. Referrals may be made by physicians, nurses, family members, clergy, nursing homes, social workers or others concerned about the welfare of an individual. Individuals may also inquire about the program on their own behalf.
The clinical staff of GRMC's Behavioral Health Services is pleased to offer free, confidential assessments for the purpose of determining need for mental health services. Assessments are completed to determine need for intervention and provide appropriate referrals for treatment when indicated. Should treatment at GRMC BHS not be a viable or desirable option, every effort will be made to match the individual with the most appropriate treatment alternative available for life.
