Town of New Canaan partners with Silver Hill Hospital to provide residents in urgent need with mental health assessments

The New Canaan Urgent Assessment (NCUA) Program serves children, adolescents and adults who are New Canaan residents at no out-of-pocket cost.

The Assessment Program is available by advance appointment only and every effort will be made to offer an assessment appointment within 48 hours of an intake call. The program is available to non-New Canaan residents, and will be subject to the member’s plan coverage benefits, which may include out-of-pocket expenses such as deductibles and copays.
