Bergen County’s Psychiatric Emergency Screening Program

201-262-HELP – a program of CarePlus – is Bergen County’s Designated Psychiatric Emergency Screening Program. The purpose of 201-262-HELP is to provide emergency mental health services to residents of Bergen County.

The CarePlus Psychiatric Emergency Screening Program Provides…

  • Services 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Mental Health Screeners that are trained and certified by the New Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services. They provide mental health evaluations, crisis intervention counseling, and support to individuals – either in the community or at our office – and assess for the most clinically appropriate intervention.
  • Psychiatrists who provide emergent medication services, including a psychiatric evaluation and short-term medication monitoring until the individual is linked to a long-term service provider.
  • Peer Support Staff who offer supportive counseling and psycho-education.
  • A Co-Occurring Disorders Specialist who provides training, consultation, and referral across systems for individuals who have co-occurring mental illness and substance related disorders with a goal to divert from screening and inpatient hospitalization.
  • Services to minors when authorized by the parent or legal guardian.

There is a fee for all evaluations, however it is often covered by health insurance. No individual will ever be denied services due to an inability to pay.

Call 201-262-HELP (4357) when you or a loved one are experiencing a mental health crisis.
