Spotlight on Focus Area #6: 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Center for Crisis Stabilization
Currently, there is no facility in Genesee County dedicated to assisting someone suffering from a mental health crisis. Emergency Rooms at area hospitals are not staffed with professionals experienced in dealing with mental health issues.
Limited space available vs. traditional emergency medical needs.
What we could do:
Create a 24/7, 365 days a year mental health facility in partnership with Hurley Medical Center.
Provide professional services to Genesee County residents who are suffering from mental health challenges.
