Erica Green, CSW, Accepts Intake Specialist Role for St. Claire HealthCare’s Behavioral Health Unit

“Your mental health is just as important as your physical health,” said Erica Green, CSW, St. Claire HealthCare Behavioral Health Intake Specialist. “It’s imperative that you feel comfortable in seeking the help you need, and that’s where my job comes into play.”

One of the first steps of admission to the SCH Behavioral Health Unit (BHU) is to call the intake/referral line at 606.783.6599. As the Intake Specialist, Green works closely with patients who are dealing with mental health issues from the moment they make that phone call to seek care.

“I’ll get acquainted with our patients and their referral sources through the initial phone call, then I’ll be right there to greet them if they are in need of inpatient care on the unit,” said Green. “Consistency and the continuity of care are big factors in the healing process. I’m happy to help provide that for our patients.”

Green earned her bachelor’s degree in social work from Morehead State University in 2013, then went on to earn a master’s degree in social work from the Raymond A. Kent School of Social Work and Family Sciences at the University of Louisville in 2021. Green has worked in the field since 2014 with experiences that have led her to this role, including therapeutic foster care, family preservation services, and nursing home care. She began her SCH career as a Social Worker in 2019.

“I’m most excited about patient engagement in this role,” said Green. “There’s a stigma around mental health issues and I want to break through that with the relationships I form with every individual I meet.”

SCH’s behavioral health unit has 20 inpatient beds devoted to short-term care. Located within St. Claire Regional Medical Center, the unit offers patients excellent psychiatric services within the security and convenience of a full-service hospital. Patients will receive 24-hour monitoring and supervision. For more information, visit
