Enrolling PSYCKES Users

Access to the Psychiatric Services and Clinical Knowledge Enhancement System (PSYCKES) application is managed through the NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) Security Management System (SMS), a web-based application that OMH-licensed agencies and hospitals use to grant their staff members access to certain OMH applications, including PSYCKES. Each agency or hospital has a designated Security Manager who is authorized to grant access to users.

The SMS /Security Management System Reference Manual provides information about accessing and using the OMH SMS.

The PSYCKES Access Request form (493kb) was developed by a provider implementing PSYCKES. It is not required but is offered as an optional tool.

Support for assigning a Security Manager and using SMS is provided not by the PSYCKES team but by the OMH Help Desk.

Comments or questions about the information on this page can be directed to the PSYCKES Team.
