Help Line Goals
The goals of the Access Response Center Help Line are to expedite the placement of patients who are seeking inpatient psychiatric services, both voluntary and involuntary, into the appropriate track within Behavioral Health Services. The help line assists the patient in getting to the appropriate service quickly. This reduces the anxiety that may come along with seeking services, reduces exacerbation of the patient’s symptoms that may occur due to long wait time, and maximizes the a smooth transition between departments and providers.
