- Consultation and support for hospital personnel, community physicians, allied health professionals, and others.
- Case coordination, including psychosocial evaluation for referrals to counseling, brief treatment as needed, community services and material resources, anticipatory planning, advocacy, and follow-up tracking.
- Collaboration with the Essex County District Attorney, local police, and the Department of Social Services
Our offices are located inside the NSMC Medical Administration Offices on the 2nd floor of the Gloria Wallace Building.
