No-Cost and Confidential Assessments

The assessment staff offers around-the-clock assessments to people seeking treatment for a behavioral health disorder or substance use disorder. The purpose for the assessment is to determine the need of psychiatric care and the appropriate level of treatment. Assessments can be done in-person at Gulfport Behavioral, through Teleassessment or in some cases face to face at a mental health or medical provider’s office. Each staff member performing an assessment is licensed and experienced in completing individual assessments.
