BizTimes: Crisis Resource Center planned for Milwaukee’s northwest side

The Milwaukee Center for Independence plans to open a new Crisis Resource Center on Milwaukee’s northwest side to serve people experiencing psychiatric crises.

The site of the new center is a vacant rectory, owned by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, located at 69th Street and Silver Spring Avenue. It will provide an additional 10 beds to address the growing need for 24/7 stabilization services in Milwaukee, MCFI said.

The new site is supported by Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division and Milwaukee Health Care Partnership.

MCFI has two existing CRC locations, which provide an alternative to involuntary emergency room admissions and criminal justice facilities for those experiencing psychiatric crises. They offer services including recovery-focused assessment, stabilization, psychosocial groups and peer support. The centers are a program of Whole Health Clinical Group, a division of MCFI.
