Pierce County is opening their new crisis care facility to support those in our community with behavioral health issues.
The CRC will be operated by RI International. It is located in the Mid-County Plan Area, not far from Franklin Pierce High School.
The public is welcome to attend virtually on Friday, March 12at 11:30 a.m. Due to COVID considerations the on site ceremony will not be open to the public, but will be streamed live at www.piercecountywa.gov/crc
According to Pierce County, the CRC will be, “A facility where law enforcement, EMTs, and families can bring those suffering from mental health crises — such as suicidal thoughts and delusional disorders — to receive immediate and appropriate care. The Crisis Recovery Center serves only 16 people at any one time, will have a 1:2 staff-to-patient ratio, is locked and secure, and all patients are transported to and from the center by law enforcement, ambulance, family or contracted transport.”
