What is the Vanderbilt 24/7 Access Program?

Our crisis assessment and admissions program at Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Learn more here.

Will I need to go to the Emergency Room?

That depends on your needs and the issues you're dealing with when you're admitted. We'll help you make that decision, answering all your questions and giving you the information you need.

What can I expect during admission?

First, a clinician will talk to you or your family to learn about your conditions and issues you need help with. The clinician will use this knowledge to find the mental health services that can help you. He or she may share your information with members of our staff. Our goal is to find the level of care with the most freedom that will meet your needs and ensure your safety.

We'll work with your health insurance company to coordinate treatment. Your insurance company will require us to review the signs, symptoms, and specific problems that you are experiencing. The insurance company will then decide whether to approve the treatment we recommend.

If you're insured under TennCare, the insurance company will often require the local mobile crisis team to help assess your treatment needs. Dealing with insurance companies can take time, but we'll do our best to make the process as quick and smooth as possible.

What can I expect during my hospital stay at Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital?

During your stay, we'll work with you to create a personalized treatment program based on the problems you're dealing with. Treatment will include one-on-one therapy, family therapy and group therapy.

How will you protect my privacy?

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

This program can serve 2 purposes:

  • A bridge from inpatient to outpatient treatment

Learn more here.

What can I expect when it's time to leave Vanderbilt?

We work with each patient to create a discharge plan that will help you stay healthy and stable once you leave the hospital. We'll give you detailed written guidelines about future appointments, follow-up care, medicines and where to find help. As you make progress, we may change your discharge plan along the way.

What's the smoking policy at VPH?

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is a smoke-free campus. Your doctor can discuss options with you during your stay at the hospital.
