Admission can also be voluntary or involuntary. In order to refer clients for a designated mental health professional evaluation, please contact your local crisis line, or contact the Evaluation and Treatment facilities directly, and their contact information is located at the right of this page.

 

Admission to an Adult Evaluation and Treatment Facilities

Clients who are 18 years old or older can be admitted voluntarily or under the Involuntary Treatment Act. Clients are admitted under this rule when they are demonstrating an increase in mental health symptoms that cannot be safely managed in the community.

The typical length of stay is between seven and ten days.
