Behavioral Health Urgent Care Services Expanded
The Virtual Behavioral Health Urgent Care program In the wake of the recent campus shooting at Michigan State University, and amid ongoing stressors for teens from school shootings to social media, Common Ground, the largest provider of mental health crisis services in Oakland County, announced the expansion of its Behavioral Health Urgent Care to serve young people ages 12 and older.
Behavioral Health Urgent Care is a virtual visit platform for those who need immediate emotional or psychiatric support from a licensed healthcare provider. The $1 million program, expected to serve 15,000 people a year, launched last spring for adults. Now, it will also meet the needs of 12-17 year-olds experiencing anxiety, depression, panic, grief, mood swings, and suicidal thoughts more quickly, so patients don’t have to wait days or weeks to be seen by a therapist or psychiatrist.Learn More
