Mission:

To provide a focused single-source entry point into the mental health care delivery system.

Around-the-clock-telephone triage encompasses

  • General information about the mental health network
  • Referral to acute inpatient care
  • Referral to ambulatory or specialty programs or services
  • Resource verification
  • Insurance pre-certification
  • Crisis intervention

Assessments by clinicians of individuals experiencing a psychiatric crisis are available in the Hartford Hospital Emergency Department.
