In this article and video interview with Weston Today, Andrew J. Gerber, MD, PhD, Silver Hill Hospital President and Medical Director and Allison Lisbon, Weston Human Services Director, discuss the Weston Urgent Assessment Program.

The program, a collaboration between the towns of New Canaan and Weston and Silver Hill Hospital offers town residents in immediate need of mental health or substance abuse treatment with a timely, psychiatric assessment by Silver Hill Hospital and a tailored referral for ongoing care. Introduced in New Canaan in 2022, the Urgent Assessment program eliminates common obstacles to getting care and treatment and is offered at no out-of-pocket costs to Weston and New Canaan residents.
