DHHS’s ACCESS to Behavioral Health Services (ACCESS) program moved to newly renovated space at 27 Courthouse Square in Rockville (formerly the Grey Courthouse). The courthouse was recently renovated and is now home to a variety of County programs.
Staff at ACCESS can help uninsured adults and those covered by Medicaid or Medicare find behavioral health services, as well as provide consultations, assessments, brief case management and transitional psychiatry services.
“The ACCESS program is one of the best kept secrets in the community,” said Rolando Santiago, chief of DHHS’ Behaviorxal Health and Crisis Services. We want to be sure that every resident, regardless of their health insurance coverage, can find quality mental health care when needed.
Call the ACCESS program at 240-777-1770 for assistance or email Accesstobehavioralhealth@montgomerycountymd.gov. The program is open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments are available, and walk-ins are welcome during business hours. Visit the ACCESS website for more information. https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/HHS-Program/Program.aspx?id=BHCS/BHCSACCBehavhealthsvcs-p239.html
