MERRILLVILLE, IN – Regional Health Systems announces the groundbreaking of an innovative sub-acute Crisis Receiving and Mental Health Stabilization Services Program. This program aims to provide comprehensive crisis support to both youth and adults in alignment with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Best Practices. By implementing a No Wrong Door philosophy, Regional Health Systems seeks to ensure that individuals experiencing crisis receive the timely and appropriate care they need.
The new Crisis Receiving and Mental Health Stabilization Services Program will revolutionize the way crisis services are delivered in Northwest Indiana. It will offer an integrated approach to addressing the mental health needs of individuals in crisis, regardless of age. By combining evidence-based practices and a client-centered approach, Regional Health Systems aims to provide effective interventions and support during critical periods of distress.
Key features of the program include:
To accommodate the program, Regional Health Systems will revamp its Merrillville Care Center on 8555 Taft St beginning November 1, 2023. The program is expected to open to the public in 2024.
Funding for the Crisis Receiving and Mental Health Stabilization Services Program was made possible by a grant from the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction, the federal American Rescue Plan Act and the National Opioid Settlement.
