CSU Psychiatric Evaluation Timeframe

Crisis stabilization has allowed up to 72 hours for a psychiatric evaluation and the updated requirement is at the time of admission. This will create a very overwhelming admission process for individuals where they will be assessed by an LMHP, nurse, and a psychiatrist/NP/PA while they're in the midst of a mental health crisis. Having up to 72 hours makes this much less taxing on the individuals that we serve.
