What Happens When I
Contact
A Community Mental Health Center
? When you call your
Community
Mental
Health
Center
the representative
will
ask you for
some
personal information, insurance information and
to briefly
describe
why you
called
. Feel free to ask questions.
CMHCs have some therapists who schedule
intake
appointments in the community
, for example,
in schools
and healthcare provider offices
. If you are an adult, a family
member or friend can make the call
and appointment
for
you
, but
the representative
may want to speak to you for
more information
. If you need an interpreter
, foreign
language translator
, or have a physical limitation or handicap (e.g. c
annot climb stairs or use a
wheelchair), let the representative know
. An
intake
appointment will be scheduled.
The CMHC
may ask you to complete and bring history, medical and/o
r legal forms or other specific
information and may send you a confirmation letter
with these
forms.

4 Some things you can do
while you are waiting for
your appointment
If you do not have health insurance or have
1not applied, you should use this time to apply
for Medicaid. The
NHCare
Path
Medicaid
Servi
ces
booklet provides information about
Medicaid and the application process. Write
down the date you applied and print and keep
any documents or correspondence you receive
about your Medicaid application.
Some people find it helpful to write down
2things about themselves and how they are

feeling so they don™t forget the day of the

appointment.
3If you need to reschedule your intake
appointment or have changed your mind about

the appointment for any reason, please contact
the CMHC as soon as possible.
If at any time you feel you are in a crisis
, Emergency
Services is available 24
hours, 7 days per week to provide phone consultations, walk in appointments
and/or arrange to meet with you to manage the crisis or psychiatric
hospitalization when appropriate. Call 911 for imminent danger.
