Psychiatric Emergency Services (PES) is a program of the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry that provides emergency/urgent walk-in evaluations and crisis phone services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for adults.
Who we serve:
We serve patients of Michigan Medicine. We are designed and staffed to evaluate and treat adult patients. Children experiencing psychiatric emergencies will be seen only to determine if hospital care is needed.
What we do:
We provide psychiatric evaluation; referrals to inpatient treatment facilities; crisis intervention; and mental health treatment referral information to those who are in crisis or are experiencing a psychiatric emergency. If hospital care is recommended or required, we do not guarantee that care will be at UM Hospital. UM has very few inpatient psychiatry beds, and most patients seen in PES who require hospital care are referred to other hospitals.
