What is the Acute Psychiatric Services (APS)?

APS serves as the 24-hour psychiatric emergency service for the University Behavioral Health Care-Piscataway system. Call 855-515-5700 for more information.

 

What services are provided by APS?

APS provides a 24-hour walk-in to serve individuals of all ages who require an emergency level of care. Some individuals who come to APS are currently in treatment at University Behavioral Health Care; others are not. Walk-in patients are seen briefly by a nurse, and then by a mental health clinician who conducts an assessment of a patient's condition and develops an appropriate intervention and disposition plan. APS operates a 3-bed crisis unit in which patients may be treated for up to 24 hours and provided with stabilizing care; a psychiatrist is available to the service 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition to on-site evaluation and treatment, certified screening staff of APS provides a 24-hour outreach service to communities throughout Middlesex County. During an outreach, a screener provides an assessment of an individual who may need referral for crisis treatment or possible hospital admission. Additionally, the unit provides a 24-hour telephone hotline service staffed by crisis counselors who are trained in both telephone assessment and crisis prevention.
