The purpose of MUPC is short-term crisis intervention including medication management. Students who are screened at MUPC are being screened for hospitalization. Children should be referred to MUPC if they are out of control and a danger to themselves or others. To have your child screened for hospitalization, go directly to the University of Missouri Emergency Room. At that time, your child's vitals will be taken and your child will be sent to Psychiatric Assessment Unit for psychiatric assessment.
