“We couldn’t be more excited to have the caliber of a leading physician that Dr. Sally Brooks brings to the organization,” said Jeff Spight, CEO and co-founder of MIND 24-7. “His experience leading the clinical efforts of some of the nation’s largest healthcare organizations will be critical to us as we bring MIND 24-7 to many markets.”
Dr. Brooks will lead all medical efforts for the growing company. His extensive experience and expertise will support the development of MIND 24-7’s clinical program and the leadership of the company’s clinical teams. She will also oversee infrastructure developments to support the recruitment, training and advancement of medical personnel.
“I am very excited to join the work and mission of MIND 24-7,” said Dr. Brooks. “There is a significant need for immediate access to behavioral health care, and I am proud to be part of a company that is committed to providing that access to those in need,” she concluded. .
All MIND 24-7 facilities are open 24/7 and do not require an appointment – addressing the urgent need for immediate access to mental health care. MIND 24-7 offers individuals three levels of adapted support:
– Psych Express Care (urgent mental health care) avoids unnecessary emergency room visits by allowing patients to walk in and see a licensed mental health clinician immediately. On average, an appointment lasts one hour from start to finish.
– Psych Crisis Care (mental health crisis stabilization) reduces the need for suboptimal hospitalizations by serving patients in real crisis. Patients are cared for by a trained multidisciplinary team who will assess, stabilize and treat them until they are ready to be discharged or transition to an appropriately selected longer-term intensive treatment program .
– Psych Progressions (transitional mental health care) reduces readmissions by focusing on both interim mental health needs prior to placement in specialized care, as well as the social determinants of health that have exacerbated the crisis of mental health. Psych Progressions provides the immediate care needed until our social workers can refer patients to our ecosystem of community and mental health partners.
Dr. Brooks’ appointment as the new CMO of MIND 24-7 comes shortly after the company opened its third walk-in mental health facility in the Greater Phoenix area. The inaugural location, Phoenix/Central opened in September 2021 and was followed in February 2022 by a second location in Mesa, Arizona. The official grand opening ceremony for the company’s third Phoenix/Central-North location will take place at 4:30 p.m. this Thursday. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Kristi Stovall at [email protected] All MIND 24-7 locations are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and do not require an appointment.
With three sites in the company’s portfolio, they now have the capacity to treat up to 200 patients at a time in the Greater Phoenix area alone. To support this rapid growth, MIND 24-7 has hired more than 450 team members, including nearly 300 additional behavioral health professionals. The company has aggressive plans for rapid and continued expansion in many cities across the country, including additional facility locations in Arizona and Nevada with openings scheduled for this winter.
