Walk-in care for children and teens who need to see a licensed mental health clinician right away.
Emergency care for children and teens who are a threat to themselves or others. We work to assess and stabilize patients so they can either go home or move to inpatient care.
MIND 24-7 Phoenix Central provides walk-in urgent mental health care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, just like an emergency room or urgent care center—but with a much shorter wait!
When a person needs urgent mental health care, they can simply walk in—no appointment needed. Our average wait time to see a mental health clinician is about 15 minutes from the time a person walks in the door.
The MIND 24-7 Phoenix Central mental health urgent care clinic does not take appointments. But that’s okay because they aren’t ever needed! People can walk in any time, day or night, and be seen within 15 to 20 minutes by one of our mental health professionals.
Some of the signs that someone is experiencing (or nearing) a mental health crisis include:
However, there are many other reasons a person might seek mental health urgent care services that are not a crisis. A person might be struggling with depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder and they do not have a mental health provider or cannot get an appointment with one. They also might want to seek care if they simply do not feel like themselves and want to talk to someone right away.
A person may not know exactly what kind of help they need, and that’s okay. The mental health clinicians at MIND 24-7 can help a person find the next best step for them.
For example, if someone is in crisis and needs more intensive care, we will admit them and care for them around the clock until they feel ready to go home—typically within 24 hours. In other cases, the answer might be a prescription medication or a referral to ongoing individual or group counseling.
Insurance coverage should never be a barrier to getting mental health care when a person needs it. We accept many insurance plans, including AHCCCS (Medicaid), but if a person is concerned about coverage, our team is happy to work with them to find the best solution for their personal situation.
When a person comes to MIND 24-7 to see a therapist or psychiatrist, our providers will evaluate them and develop a personalized treatment plan, including any needed medications, and get them back to their home and life. We also will coordinate any referrals or additional care with their provider(s) of choice.
