Mental health response is provided to life threatening situations such as suicidal ideation or attempts. Other mental health crises are responded to within a maximum of two hours. All referred inmates receive a mental health evaluation by a qualified mental health staff to determine the presence of a mental disturbance and the scope of the services required. A psychiatrist will evaluate all inmates who may require psychotropic medication. Follow up mental health referrals for outpatient services will be afforded all inmates who request services during their incarceration.
