The Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) serves Ventura County residents ages 18 to 64 who are experiencing a mental health crisis. Adults who are placed on a civil commitment hold or who arrive on a voluntary status are assessed for appropriate level of care up to inpatient hospitalization. Should inpatient hospitalizing be required, the CSU facilitates this transfer process. Adults who do not meet criteria are stabilized at the CSU and discharged following psychiatric assessment, safety planning, and aftercare/discharge coordination. The CSU is staffed with a Registered Nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. A psychiatrist is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
