Psychiatric center changing hands, avoids foreclosure
Published: May 19,2010
CLEVELAND — Delta Community Mental Health Services will take over Cleveland’s Crisis Intervention Center from the state on July 1.
The 16-bed Charles W. Capps Jr. Crisis Intervention Center provides short-term, acute psychiatric care to individuals committed through the courts.
DCMHS Executive Director Richard Duggin tells The Bolivar Commercial that the center is currently operated by the Mississippi Department of Mental Health and licensed by the Mississippi State Department of Health.
Duggin says the center had faced closure, which would be avoided with its takeover by DCMHS.
He says the center will no longer be funded through the state.
He says one change planned is that individuals would admit themselves into the crisis center without the necessity of a court order.
