Behavioral health services are evolving frequently. Nationwide Children's Hospital and Ohio State University are collaborating to provide psychiatric and behavioral emergency evaluations for Franklin County children and adolescents. The Emergency Department of Nationwide Children's Hospital will provide the evaluations for children 14 years of age and under. The Emergency Department at Ohio State University Hospital will provide evaluations for teens 15 years of age and above. An organization called NetCare that previously did psychiatric and behavioral crisis evaluations and hospitalizations will not longer provide these services for children and teens.
