    1. Mrs. Pereira, RSM School Counselor, is checking email daily.  If you have a need during this or at any other time, please email her at kcarges@acpsd.net and she will be sure to get back with you in a timely manner.  Stay safe!
    2. If you have an urgent need please call HelpLine at 211.  This is an excellent referral service that can point you in the right direction for help, no matter what area you reside in.  They can provide information on help with food, utilities, health care, housing, and so much more.

    All locations of Aiken-Barnwell Mental Health Center changed operations to help keep patients, staff, and our community healthy and prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus.

    The information listed below is on their Facebook page and webpage.  Here is what it means for their patients.

    ·        If you have a routine (scheduled) appointment, a member of our staff will call you to discuss options for your current needs- either by phone or possibly secure video- so that you will not need to come in person. Staff will explain how telephone and telehealth visits work.

    ·        If you have an appointment by phone or telehealth, your information will be secure and private, just as with an in-person visit.

    ·        We will remain open for emergencies, and to provide scheduled injections.

    ·        If you are not sure when your next appointment is or have general questions, PLEASE CALL AND TALK TO STAFF, DO NOT COME TO THE CENTER.

    ·        Our Assessment Mobile Crisis/CCRI Team staff will continue to respond to crises in the community.  To reach your local team, call 1-833-364-2274.

    Please note, the North Augusta clinic is not open at this time.  We will be seeing all Aiken County residents at the Main Office, 1135 Gregg Hwy, Aiken, SC.  They have established a triage area in the back of the main office where RNs will screen patients prior to being seen by a clinician.  As noted above, they're attempting to do the majority of their services via telephone and telehealth.  This includes services provided by the clinicians, nurses and psychiatrists. Patients receiving injectable meds will be seen on site at both Aiken and Barnwell offices. They are accepting new patients. They ask that you call and a trained mental health professional will assess via phone.  Please do not hesitate to contact the Clinical Director, Bianca Otterbein at 803-508-7862 should you have questions.

  • PREPARE FOR FAMILY EMERGENCIES WITH SMART911 - We are fortunate in Aiken County to have access to a free service called SMART911. The service allows families to register their homes and occupants for the purpose of providing law enforcement and first responders with immediate access to life-saving information in the event of a call for help to 911. During an actual emergency, first responders will have this vital information relayed to them before they arrive. Signing up is fast, easy, and free!
