Next Steps: Brief BHSE Appointment, Then Initial Intake
Once the registration paperwork has been completed, you will be scheduled for a brief (normally 15 to 30 minutes) Behavioral Health Screening Evaluation (BHSE). This will help the therapist determine if you meet the criteria for services. You should bring your photo ID, insurance cards, social security card, and proof of income (if applicable).
Following the brief BHSE appointment, the therapist will schedule you for an intake session. Please note due to demand your initial intake appointment may be scheduled from a few weeks to a month out. The initial intake appointment is around an hour long.
If medication is needed, you will be scheduled for a Psychiatric Evaluation (normally 45 minutes or longer depending on translation service needs, etc.) with one of our medication providers following your initial intake appointment. Medication follow-up appointments are normally 15 to 30 minutes long.
