UW Psychiatry Consultation Line
The UW Psychiatry Consultation Line (PCL) helps busy Washington providers navigate clinical questions regarding adult patients experiencing mental health and/or substance use conditions. UW faculty psychiatrists are on hand 24/7 to consult on assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning, including management of antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, antipsychotic medications and medications for substance use. No question is too basic or too complex – no one should feel unsupported in the care of their patient.
Prescribing providers call 877-WA-PSYCH and after a short intake with a health navigator, consult with a psychiatrist at the University of Washington. Within one business day, the provider receives written documentation of the recommendations — no need to take notes. Providers can call at any time, or can opt to schedule a consult time convenient for them. There is no limit to how many times a provider can call, and the service is free for the caller and the patient.
Coupled with PAL for Kids and PAL for Moms – specialty psychiatry consultation lines focused on children/adolescents and pregnant/new moms – UW Psychiatry has developed a robust psychiatric consultation system to help health care providers who are seeing an increased caseload of patients with mental health and substance use problems. Although the consultation lines were not set up in response to the pandemic, they are serving as a tremendous resource during these trying times.
If you are in a leadership position, please let your providers know about the PCL. We can help them if they are unsure about prescribing anti-anxiety medications, have questions about comorbidities, or don’t know what to do because their patient’s depression is not improving.
If you’re a provider — give us a try! Call 1-877-WA-PSYCH (1-877-927-7924).
