Mental Health at Saint Vincent Hospital
Saint Vincent is well-known for its long time commitment to providing quality mental health services to the Erie community. Click on the links below to learn more about the services offered through Saint Vincent Behavioral Services:
Our specially trained behavioral health professionals are available 24/7 in the Saint Vincent Emergency Department to provide support and complete evaluations to determine if further mental health treatment is needed. Needs assessment staff meet with patients in the Lincoln behavioral health assessment area, a four-room unit located off the Saint Vincent Emergency Department, in a secure and safe environment of the hospital. This area provides comfort and privacy while the evaluation is being completed.
Adult Inpatient Services
Saint Vincent has the area's longest running inpatient program which offers treatment in a safe and caring environment under a doctor's supervision. Sometimes, it is necessary to seek inpatient care when problems make daily living difficult. The inpatient unit is not a substitute for living at home. It is for people who choose to come in for treatment and will eventually return home.
At Saint Vincent, your caretakers work as a treatment team. This team includes a psychiatrist, nursing staff, inpatient therapist/social worker, recreational therapist and other professionals if necessary, such as dietitians, counselors, psychologists and occupational therapists. The treatment team works with the patient's existing support system and identifies additional sources of support when needed.
Saint Vincent's Inpatient Adult Behavioral Unit is located at 232 West 25 Street in Erie, PA. To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call 814-452-5555 or toll free 1-888-950-9090.
