The NeuroPsychiatric Center (NPC) is a crisis and emergency center that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is the main public mental health emergency program in Harris County. The NPC serves over 10,000 consumers a year. Adults, adolescents, and children come to the NPC for help. Many of those served are indigent or uninsured. Individuals seeking services may come voluntarily or may be brought to the NPC by law enforcement.
The goal of NPC is to quickly and accurately evaluate consumers with mental health emergencies. NPC uses the least restrictive means possible to stabilize people so that they may return to the community and stay out of the hospitals and jails. The NPC has several programs that serve anyone with an emergent or urgent psychiatric condition.
