Emergency Service is the provision of service to people in crisis. It includes mental health and social service provision or procurement and advocacy. Emergency services offer immediate crisis intervention services and service procurement to relieve the client's distress and to help maintain or recover his or her level of functioning. Emphasis is on stabilization, so that the client can actively participate in needs assessment and service planning. It is affiliated with a Designated Screening Center.
