When someone is in a state of crisis, there is no time to spare. The time wasted in between making an appointment and receiving treatment can lead to devastating consequences for an individual who is in crisis. This is why an urgent psychiatric center, like Mind MD, provides same-day mental health services that make an immediate impact on an individual’s mental health and stability. We believe that the very last thing you need is to wait for an appointment to address the debilitating symptoms of a mental health condition or substance use disorder.

Instead, we operate as a mental health urgent care where patients are seen right when they walk in the door. When you visit our urgent psychiatric center, you will be evaluated by one of our empathetic, knowledgeable, and unbiased Doctors. After an evaluation, they will determine the best course of action for your particular needs. Since the needs of every patient are different, we ensure that the treatment plan built for you is individualized and full of evidence-based interventions.

Here we offer a range of services for patients who need immediate care. These include one-on-one therapies that get to the root of patients’ unique problems. Since mental health troubles can be worsened by issues in a patient’s life, we offer therapy that focuses on a patient’s past or present to fully and holistically address every contributing factor toward mental and emotional anguish.

Mental Health Conditions We Treat

When you visit our urgent psychiatric center, you will receive a full evaluation from our compassionate and experienced staff. We treat adult patients and adolescents as young as ten years old who are experiencing any type of mental health emergency, including those struggling with:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression and Dysthymia
  • Substance Use Disorders
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Schizoaffective Disorder
  • Substance & Alcohol Abuse

Regardless of what mental health issue you are facing, we can offer stability in a moment of crisis. Overall, our goal is to provide you with the resources and support you need to begin the journey to recovery.

We offer flexible scheduling, walk-in services, and telehealth sessions. Sessions before work or school, or the accommodation of same-day needs are among our offerings at MindMD. We also provide referrals to other providers when necessary.

Depression and Dysthymia

The mental health condition, depression, is characterized by persistent sadness and a loss of interest in activities that you once enjoyed. Depression affects how you think, feel, and behave, and can lead to a variety of physical and emotional problems.

Dysthymia is a chronic (long-term) form of depression. People with dysthymia may have episodes of major depression along with periods of hopelessness, low self-esteem, and feelings of overall inadequacy.

Timely treatment for these conditions is essential to prevent the serious complications that can arise. Treatment at our urgent psychiatric center can prevent the development of the following complications:

  • A reduction in the quality of life of the patient
  • Relationship difficulties and persistent family conflicts
  • School and work problems due to decreased productivity
  • Substance abuse to cope with symptoms of depression and dysthymia
  • The development of personality disorders or other co-occurring mental health disorders
  • The development of major depressive disorder (MDD), anxiety disorders, and other mood disorders
  • Chronic pain and general medical illnesses due to a weakened immune system
  • Suicidal ideation (suicidal thoughts) or behavior

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders are characterized by excessive worry and fear. Individuals with this condition generally experience physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, sweating, and difficulty breathing. At MindMD, we are an urgent psychiatric center that treats a range of anxiety disorders that include the following:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): People with GAD experience persistent and excessive worry about a variety of things.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): PTSD can develop after someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event, such as a natural disaster, serious accident, terrorist attack, war, or sexual assault.
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): OCD is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by persistent and recurrent unwanted thoughts and repetitive behaviors.

Unfortunately, without treatment, anxiety disorders can get worse over time and lead to a host of complications. The complications caused by anxiety disorders can include the following:

  • Depression (which often occurs with an anxiety disorder) or other mental health disorders
  • Substance misuse
  • Trouble sleeping (insomnia)
  • Digestive or bowel problems
  • Headaches and chronic pain
  • Social isolation
  • Problems functioning at school or work
  • Poor quality of life
  • Suicide

While everyone experiences anxiety at some point in their lives, those with an anxiety disorder experience severe symptoms that interfere with their daily lives.

Schizoaffective Disorder

Schizoaffective disorder is a mental illness that is characterized by a combination of symptoms of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations or delusions, and mood disorder symptoms, such as depression or mania.

This serious condition can cause impaired communication, bizarre or unusual behavior, and impaired occupational, academic, and social functioning. Without treatment, those with schizoaffective disorder are at an increased risk for the following:

  • Suicide, suicide attempts or suicidal thoughts
  • Social isolation
  • Family and interpersonal conflicts
  • Unemployment
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Alcohol or other substance use problems
  • Significant health problems
  • Poverty and homelessness

If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of schizoaffective disorder, it’s important to seek professional help. At MindMD, our urgent psychiatric center offers same-day mental health services and can provide the treatment and support needed to manage schizoaffective disorder.

Substance Abuse for Drug and Alcohol

Many mental health conditions can lead to substance abuse. When a person struggles with the symptoms of a mental illness, drugs may seem like a way to ease debilitating symptoms. Unfortunately, substance abuse can actually worsen mental health symptoms and lead to a host of other problems.

At MindMD, our urgent psychiatric center offers same day mental health services and can provide the treatment and support needed to manage substance abuse and addiction. We offer outpatient detox in a safe, and restorative environment to those who need it.

Many of our patients come to us for walk-in detox from substances such as opiates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol. Withdrawal from these substances is highly uncomfortable and at times even deadly. With continuous support, medical supervision, and monitoring, you can safely begin to heal from addiction.

Our Network of Excellence

When patients receive treatment at MindMD they are also connected to our network of excellence. This means that they will have access to the best resources and support available. Once you have been taken in, assessed, and cared for, we can connect you to any additional treatment that you may need outside of our center.

Our network of excellence includes therapists, hospitals, and sober living homes. Our priority is to address your crisis the moment you need it. After initial treatment, we connect our patients with the next levels of care they need, providing the connectivity, urgent care, and accessibility that is missing in mental health care.

The Importance of Mental Health Urgent Care

In the state of California, the time between the need for mental health care and the opportunity to see a mental health professional is too long. The wait time can range from 14 to 90 days. This means that people who need urgent care are often left without the help they need for weeks or even months.

At MindMD, we believe that everyone deserves access to quality mental health care. We also believe that these services should be available the moment they are needed, not days after a crisis when irreparable damage can occur. Therefore, that’s why we offer mental health urgent care services.

If you or someone close to you requires an urgent psychiatric center with luxury accommodations, we can provide that unique combination. A challenging time in your life requires a tranquil environment and expert medical supervision. To make an appointment or receive more information on the disorders we treat, contact us through our appointments page.
