Full Statewide Screening Center Listing:
Screening Center - A public or private ambulatory care service designated by the Commissioner, which provides mental health services including assessment, emergency and referral services to mentally ill persons in a specified geographical area. Screening is the process by which it is ascertained that the individual being considered for commitment meets the standards for both mental illness and dangerousness as defined in P.L. 1987,c.116 (N.J.S.A. 30.4-27.1 et seq.) and that all stabilization options have been explored or exhausted.

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.
