Psychological Simple Treatment and Rapid Triage (PsySTART)


Man in what appears to be a fire station, anxiously holding his folded hands against his mouth and noseThe Oregon Health Authority's Health Systems Division and Public Health Division are working together to provide a new behavioral health tool to Oregon communities:

PsySTART, a proven mental health triage and case management system developed by Chip Schriber, PH.D. Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Department of Pediatrics Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

This tool is offered as part of Oregon's Behavioral Health Emergency Response Initiative supporting Emergency Support Function 8: Public Health and Medical Services.


Email the Public Health Division's Health Security, Preparedness and Response Program, or view these questions and answers:

​The originating agency owns the case files and information created using the system. No other system user can access the individual case/triage files.

​There is no direct cost to OHA partners using PsySTART. The solution is funded by OHA. Costs incurred to our partners would be indirect: staff time, travel to attend training.

​PsySTART is a web-based tool. Both the victims and responders modules work on cell phones, tablets, laptops and desktops. In addition, there is a phone app avalible for the responders module.
