The Admissions Department

The Intake Department at Wyoming Behavioral Institute provides a no cost, confidential mental health assessment 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. All mental health admissions are based on clinical necessity. We cannot offer diagnosis, counseling, or recommendations online, but an Admissions Coordinator is available at 800-457-9312.

When you enter the admission area at Wyoming Behavioral Institute, you will be greeted by a hospital staff member. Visitors have a separate waiting area in our facility. An admissions coordinator, nurse or therapist will meet with you and explain the admission process. Please be prepared to spend 30 to 60 minutes completing initial paperwork. Staff will discuss which items are allowed on the unit. Patients will be seen by their psychiatrist within 24 hours of admission.

Some problems may have been building for years; we can assess them in hours. Our intake team provides a comprehensive assessment at no charge. The goal of this assessment is to provide the patient and /or referring parties with comprehensive conclusions and recommendations for treatment. A member of our intake team is easy to access and available 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Simply call for an appointment, walk in, or obtain a referral from a health care professional. Each individualized assessment is designed to explore particular issues, including:

  • Alcohol and other Drug Dependency
  • Psychiatric Disorders such as Depression
  • Anxiety or Schizophrenia
  • Sexual, Physical or Emotional Abuse
  • Behavioral Disruption of an Explosive or Assaultive Nature
  • Family Problems

Following the assessment process, a referral will be made to the appropriate level of care based on each patients' individualized clinical needs. These may include inpatient hospitalization, day treatment programs, or referral to an outpatient therapist or physician.
