New Crisis Center Open
The new TLS Behavioral Health Crisis Resource Center North in now open. The center provides a safe, welcoming place for adults experiencing a psychiatric crisis to receive intervention services. Crisis Resource Centers (CRCs) are a community based alternative to emergency room visits and institutionalization. Staff at BHD, police officers, and private hospitals will refer individuals to the center. Individuals can also seek care at the CRC on their own. The opening of the new center is a significant step forward in the plan to transition Milwaukee County's mental health care system from one that is reliant on institutionalization to a system that uses smaller, community-based settings.
TLS Behavioral Health Crisis Resource Center North is located at 5409 W. Villard Avenue in Milwaukee. The CRC provides services 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and will accept admissions from 7am - 10pm daily.
