Other Community Services



Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health offers a broad range of services. Below you will find descriptions of each of the major service areas and links to the details such as available programs or access information for each service area.

Emergency Mental Health Services
Emergency Mental Health Services are provided through our inpatient psychiatric health facility and our psychiatric emergency services unit. Services include inpatient treatment of acute psychiatric conditions, crisis counseling, emergency assessment, crisis line intervention, safety planning and resource education.

Psychiatric Emergency Services
Psychiatric Emergency Services (PES) has partnered with Rideout Hospital to provide psychiatric treatment to individuals who have been placed on a Welfare & Institutions Code 5150 and taken to the emergency department. Staff members of PES are established inside Rideout Hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Services include medical clearance from Rideout Hospital, crisis counseling and emergency psychiatric assessment for inpatient hospitalization from Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health, and possible psychiatry interventions from JSA Telepsychiatry. PES staff are also able to utilize JSA Telepsychiatry to request medication evaluations and consult on potential rescinding of W&I Code 5150s in the emergency department. The PES Team consists of highly trained therapists, crisis counselors, and mental health workers that use supportive and solution-oriented problem solving to bridge the individual into outpatient services and other community resources when the W&I Code 5150 is rescinded. This three team model of PES, Rideout, and JSA Telepsychiatry has led to an innovative practice of embedding treatment within the hospital and providing members of the community faster and more efficient levels of treatment when experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis.

Adult Services
Adult Services provides outpatient assessment, diagnosis and treatment of serious mental health conditions and co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. The treatment team consists of therapists, psychiatrists, nursing staff, counselors, peer mentors and support staff.
