MHUAC (Mental Health Urgent Assessment Centre)

The Mental Health Urgent Assessment Centre (MHUAC) is a specifically designed area which supports the timely assessment of a person with mental health needs. If someone attends an Accident and Emergency centre due to mental health needs, and they are deemed medically fit (no physical health intervention required), they could be supported to attend MHUAC. Professionals will then provide the most appropriate assessment to meet the person’s needs.
