NNAMHS offers the following services:
  • Psychiatric Crisis Services: Psychiatric Assessment Service (PAS) is the intake and screening point for all services and offers initial assessment and referrals to NNAMHS outpatient services. If the assessed individual is acutely ill, they may be referred to the Psychiatric Observation Unit (POU) located at Dini-Townsend Hospital, which offers rapid screening and stabilization for acute psychiatric crisis. The stay is generally limited to 72 hours or less. Sixty-five percent of those who reach the POU are released back to the community, with referrals, without need of hospitalization.
