The assessment and referral team at Salt Lake Behavioral Health ensures people receive appropriate mental health treatment and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our assessments typically take between 45 and 60 minutes. Our clinicians will review the completed mental health assessment with the physician on duty to help determine the most appropriate level of care for you.

If inpatient treatment is not deemed necessary, you will be given a referral to an appropriate outpatient provider. If inpatient treatment is deemed necessary, the intake clinician will review and complete admission paperwork with you.

Because we are an acute psychiatric hospital, if there are medical concerns at the time of assessment, medical clearance from a medical facility may be necessary before admission.
