Adult Psychiatry Services

A mental health crisis requires swift intervention by an  experienced and compassionate team of psychiatrists, nurses and therapists.

Our approach to your care is collaborative. We work closely with you and your family to develop a treatment plan. Our goal: to get you or your loved one back on the path to mental well-being.

Emergency evaluations are available 24 hours a day with a physician on site in the UC Irvine Medical Center's Emergency Department. An initial evaluation provides treatment recommendations and appropriate referrals.
