UMMHC Access Clinic extends hours

The Upper Mississippi Mental Health Center Access Clinic has extended its hours of operation.

The Access Clinic, designed to provide individuals in need of behavioral health services with same-day services, is now open five days a week. Consumers can receive immediate mental health assessments and crisis appointments. UMMHC therapists may also refer clients to the clinic. Appointments are not necessary.

Hours are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from noon-4 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3 p.m.

UMMHC, which has been in operation for more than 50 years, accepts most health insurance coverage. The cost for services can be determined on the first visit. No one will be turned away, regardless of ability to pay.

During initial intake, consumers should provide Insurance information, Social Security number and physician information; a list of current medications; and documents related to court orders, if applicable. Minor children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
