We establish and maintain a network of healthcare providers for your facility to ensure the highest quality services for the inmate population. Our philosophy is to utilize onsite service wherever possible to mitigate security risk and reduce your costs associated with transportation and correctional officer overtime.
Mental Health

Mental Health

Southern Correctional Medicine’s mental health programs comply with all applicable industry standards. We provide all patients with a mental health screening/assessment as part of our receiving process. Patients with a positive mental health screening/assessment receive further evaluation by a licensed qualified mental health professional, along with appropriate care and treatment.

Mental Health Medications

At intake, past medication history is given to both the physician and the mental health provider. If inmate has been taking mental health medications, these will be immediately approved by the physician and provided to the inmate by supply of the stock medications on hand through SCM.

Mental Health Providers

Any patients with mental health issues will be scheduled to meet with a mental health provider. Mental health counselors visit the facility for scheduled appointments, but will visit more often for crisis situations if there is a need.
