Here’s a First Look at Harford County’s 24/7 Crisis Center

The Harford Crisis Center is slated to open in Bel Air in the spring of 2019 and expected to serve 3,000 people annually.

The Baltimore Business Journal reports on the public-private partnership of stakeholders behind the project as well as the services the center will provide:

The health system and Harford County contributed the $1.5 million in capital to create the center. Annual operating costs will be about $4 million annually, with funds coming from public sources, grants, the agencies partnering on the center and private donations, Sheldon said.

Services will include a hotline and outpatient mental health service offering therapy and medication management. The center will also provide 24-hour walk-in and urgent outpatient mental health care and a residential crisis center with eight beds.
