Representatives from the Community Counseling Center, the Gibson Center for Behavioral Change and others gathered on Monday afternoon at 1112 Linden Street in Cape Girardeau.

The new facility will be able to give a person in crisis another option to seek help with the latest resources.

“We really feel there was a gap in resources where when somebody was in behavioral health crisis, the option is to take them to jail, take them to the ER or do nothing. And so this crisis stabilization unit will be able to offer a much needed resource in our community,” Savannah Martin, BHCC program manager, said.

The new facility will be attached to the current Gibson Center for Behavioral Change and is expected to open in the fall.
