Psychiatric Emergency Services (PES)

We offer 24-hour psychiatric emergency services  (PES) in our community. A collaborative effort with Riverside Community Care,  we offer adult and pediatric crisis intervention services.

All calls for crisis intervention will be processed through triage in our Southbridge or Webster Emergency Departments by a mental health specialist.

Also, our Mobile Crisis team can visit you at home, at school, or in the office for crisis intervention, as needed. The goal of our PES program is to ensure that patients receive immediate medical and psychiatric attention.
