The Psychiatry Consultation Line helps care providers in Washington who are seeking clinical advice regarding adult patients (18+) with mental health and/or substance use conditions.
- As a care provider in Washington treating an adult patient with a behavioral health challenge, you call 877-WA-PSYCH (877-927-7924)
- A UW health navigator will ask a few intake questions about you and your patient (about two minutes)
- You’re connected to a UW psychiatrist. During the call, you’ll share details about your case and the psychiatrist will give you feedback and recommendations (usually around 15 minutes or less)
- The UW psychiatrist follows up with a de-identified, written documentation of the consultation and recommendations to the caller via email
Non-prescribing care providers: Call between 8-5, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).
Prescribing providers may call any time, 24/7
The PCL is funded by the State of Washington and administered by the Washington State Health Care Authority.
