Operated by Austin Travis County Integral Care, the Judge Guy Herman Center for Mental Health Crisis Care will help address Travis County’s lack of adequate access to emergency psychiatric services and will help support first responder and emergency healthcare services by creating a new point of access for crisis care. The center is the result of a collaboration of local healthcare organizations, including St. David’s Foundation and Central Health.

The center will provide short term emergency psychiatric crisis care that includes stabilization, assessment and treatment in a secure, protected residential environment for individuals experiencing behavioral health crises. The center will accept both voluntary and involuntary individuals on Emergency Detention (ED) who are experiencing a psychiatric crisis. It will offer the right level of care at the right time, reduce cost of care and improve health outcomes for patients. Adding the center to the service continuum will ensure that psychiatric crisis treatment is available in the most appropriate, most cost-effective setting.
It is anticipated the center will open in Spring 2017.
