Out-of-Hours Psychological Service in Case of Crisis or Emergency
As of 2017 medical psychologists provide psychological aid for individuals in crisis or emergency situations (for individuals with suicidal thoughts, those who know a person with suicidal thoughts and do not know how to behave in this situation, those who tried (intend) to commit suicide or cannot cope with the loss of a loved one, etc.) on weekends and holidays.
Our institution seeks to provide psychological assistance, the opportunity to solve urgent problems here and now, without delay, therefore the services of a medical psychologist are provided at the Mental Health Clinic and Out-of –Hours GP Office. We hope that this psychological help will pay off and become permanent and available to all residents.
The Out-of-Hours GP Office (hereinafter referred to as OOH GP) provides emergency primary outpatient psychological assistance to persons dealing with crisis situations.
Loved ones, family members or friends are also very vulnerable people and that is often overlooked, but they also need psychological help in a crisis situation. Therefore, upon a patient’s request, the psychological aid can be provided anonymously, i. e. people who come to a health care provider to consult a psychologist may not identify themselves. Psychological consultations are also provided for children and adolescents.
The Office is open:
- weekday evenings and nights from 8 p.m. until 7 am, and on weekends, public holidays - around the clock, when people feel lonely, looking for emotional support – Out-of-Hours GP Office (Pylimo Str. 3, room 131, tel. (8 5) 252 7218). More information here;
