Crisis Stabilization Unit remains open to those with mental health needs

Submitted by Sandra Farley, RN

The Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) is currently open for walk ins daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Those in need of care outside of those hours can seek care through the emergency department at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital and then be transferred to the CSU if appropriate. The CSU serves clients who have any sort of mental illness, ranging from anxiety to more severe cases. Clinicians are able to evaluate each client to determine if they meet 5150 criteria. Those who stay in the unit are offered a therapist, nurse and links to local resources as needed. They can stay for up to 23 hours voluntarily. While the CSU serves all ages, children and teenagers adults, a client must be 18 or older to stay in the unit. The CSU is located in the trailer adjacent to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital’s emergency department parking lot in Grass Valley. For more information, call 530-470-2425.
