Outpatient mental health care is any health care service provided to a patient who is not admitted to a facility. Outpatient mental health care may be provided in a doctor’s office, clinic, the patient’s home or hospital outpatient department.
Outpatient health treatment in a doctor’s office or clinic, often supplemented by medications administered at home, remains the norm for most routine care. Thanks to advances in treatments and technology, many tests and surgical procedures formerly conducted in the hospital can be done in an office setting. Outpatient mental health care also provides the norm for most mental health and chemical dependency treatment.
