In collaboration with Metro Nashville and the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Mental Health Cooperative will open its Crisis Treatment Center on Saturday, Feb. 2.
The new facility, located at 250 Cumberland Bend, offers 24/7 comprehensive mental health treatment for adults and children.
Additionally, officers who bring citizens in for assessment and treatment will be able to return to their patrol within 10 minutes. The adult or child in crisis will receive immediate attention, according to a release.
What they said
“People in crisis deserve quality care that is safe, timely and comprehensive,” said Mayor David Briley. “The new Crisis Treatment Center dramatically improves our system of care, providing us with a way to help those who need immediate mental health support and allowing our officers to remain on patrol.”
“This is a perfect example of what can be accomplished when community stakeholders identify and then address a critical need,” said Pam Womack, CEO of Music Health Cooperative.
“The creation of this facility is a direct result of innovative public-private partnerships and cross departmental collaborations between Music Health Cooperative, Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and Metro. With their support, we were able bring best practices in the country to our community,” she added.
