What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Psychiatric Emergency Program

The Psychiatric Emergency Program (PEP) provides walk in psychiatric crisis services at the Advocate Sherman Hospital Emergency Department and by phone 24 hours a day every day of the year. PEP provides assessment, support and referrals for people of all ages who are experiencing suicidal thoughts, psychosis or other psychiatric problems. Assessment is usually followed by a referral to another Ecker service or other community- based programs. If needed, referrals can be made to admit a person for psychiatric in-patient care. Medical intervention is available if needed.
