Psychiatric Emergency Department

Mental Health & Wellness houses the Monroe County Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) which is located in the Emergency Department of Strong Memorial Hospital and includes Mobile Crisis Team. This is a busy environment that operates 24/7. Social Workers are on site seven days a week until midnight. They contribute to psychiatric evaluations and are exposed to a broad range of mental health crisis. They are trained to complete psychosocial risk screens and evaluations, an essential element of the psychiatric evaluation. They also have the opportunity to utilize their crisis intervention skills on the phone and in-person, with patients who are experiencing acute psycho-social or psychiatric crisis.

For further assistance please contact the Psychiatric Emergency Department at (585) 275-4501
