USTAT - Short Term Assessment and Treatment
Urgent and Short Term Assessment and Treatment (USTAT) program.
If you are suffering from a mental health crisis you need to talk to your family doctor right away. Our USTAT program may also help, but you need to be referred to USTAT by your family doctor.
Our USTAT program provides up to 12 sessions of clinical counselling with a clinician trained in mental health crisis intervention and support. We can help you even though things may look bleak. Take the first step…go see your family doctor.
The mandate of the USTAT service is to provide accessible crisis intervention and brief psychotherapy treatment on a prioritization basis to the most serious and urgent acute cases requiring community mental health services. This is achieved by providing clinical services actively and collaboratively with the General Physicians (GP) in all cases.
Referral into the Agency is via the (GP) who performs initial mental status and faxes a referral to VIHA Mental Health Assessment Services Intake who then forwards it to the agency. A client is seen for one to twelve sessions. The objective is to assist in preventing admission to psychiatric hospital whenever possible.
