FBHS Online Urgent Psych Clinic

FBHS On-line Urgent Psych Clinic provides timely access to outpatient psychiatric assessment and medication management for patients experiencing a mental health crisis or risk of rapid deterioration requiring hospitalization.

Difficulty accessing care?

Patients experiencing mental illness often have difficulties accessing timely outpatient psychiatric medication management. It can take up to 4-8 weeks to get an initial evaluation with an outpatient psychiatrist. This contributes to an overreliance on Primary Care Doctors and the ED for treating non-emergent psychiatric problems.

We treat patients who have never been in psychiatric treatment, have been out of treatment for a while, or are currently in treatment but feel like they are under-treated.

  

We offer shorter waiting times, quick and easy access, online “walk-in” availability, and referrals to our longitudinal clinic. 

We also offer easy access to inpatient and ECT services at Butler Hospital, in Providence, RI. 

Longitudinal Outpatient Clinic

Our LOC is a traditional outpatient psychiatric clinic. We offer continuity of care from our urgent care clinic (UCC) to our longitudinal outpatient clinic (LOC)

Difficulty accessing continuity of care:

  • Patients often experience problems with coordination and continuity of care after use of acute health care service (for example, Urgent Care, ED, and inpatient hospitalization), which contributes to poor clinical outcomes

  • These gaps in care represent a failure to efficiently, seamlessly, and appropriately care for patients

Our urgent care providers will continue to treat you in our LOC for as long as you need it!
