Long Beach mental Health Urgent care

When people are experiencing mental health crises and need help, they can come to the Mental Health Urgent Care Center at Long Beach (MHUCC). As a consumer-focused program, its goals are to provide immediate relief to people in distress and to help them maintain stability in their lives. The program is designed to help people avoid involuntary hospitalization, psych ER visits, and incarceration.

Operated by Telecare Corporation, under contract with the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health, the MHUCC is a family and provider-friendly program. It is not an emergency room or private hospital.
