Our Patients

  • The Couch welcomes patients of any age who may be having a mental health crisis.
  • Minors are welcome but need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian for their initial visit.
  • Some patients are in need of a brief intervention only and will follow up with their usual counselors and psychiatrists, while others may elect to receive ongoing care at The Couch.
  • Patients who are intoxicated should go to an emergency room.
