Base Service Unit Intake
Our Intake team is comprised of Master Level Behavioral Health Professionals who meet with individuals and family members (based on age) to assess what services he or she needs and are eligible to receive. Intake services are offered at all WCSI locations and we serve all residents of Westmoreland County.
The Intake team provides a thorough and personalized clinical assessment, reviews any available records and information, and helps the individual to obtain community behavioral health services. The Intake Specialist will also assess the need for any case management or crisis services and facilitate the necessary referrals.
