New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:4-27.4 - Screening Service.

30:4-27.4 Screening service.

4.The commissioner, in consultation with the appropriate county mental health board and consistent with the approved county mental health plan, shall designate one or more mental health agencies or facilities in each county or multi-county region in the State as a screening service. The commissioner shall so designate an agency or facility only with the approval of the agency's or facility's governing body. In designating the screening services, the commissioner shall ensure that screening services are accessible to all persons in the State who need these services and that screening service evaluation is the preferred process for entry into outpatient treatment, short-term care facilities or psychiatric facilities so that appropriate consideration is given to less restrictive treatment alternatives.
