Mental Health Minute
The Charleston Dorchester Mental Health Center (CDMHC) provides emergency psychiatric care as well as counseling and psychiatric services for children, adolescents, adults and families. CDMHC has facilities in both Charleston and Dorchester counties, and their Charleston facility is conveniently located next to Home Depot in West Ashley. CDMHC’s emergency psychiatric care consists of an Assessment/Mobile Crisis Team that can be reached 24/7 at 843-414-2350 or 1-800-613-8379. In-person assessments for urgent or routine care are provided on a walk-in basis Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. at either of their clinics. The Mobile Crisis unit can also be sent 24/7 anywhere in the community, except hospital emergency rooms, to assess anyone experiencing a psychiatric crisis. If you are in need of assistance but are concerned about cost, information provided under the Accessing Our Services section of the CDMHC website states that they provide services regardless of the ability to pay.
The CDMHC also works in conjunction with CCSD to provide mental health counselors in select schools. James Island Charter High School has two counselors who are employed by the CDMHC but see students at the high school for counseling sessions during the school day. Students in need of services can be referred by their guidance counselor, and after filling out the appropriate paperwork, they can usually schedule a session within a few weeks.
More information about the CDMHC can be found at https://www.charlestondorchestermhc.org/
