As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in our region, it’s essential we reduce the pressure on local hospital emergency departments while still serving those experiencing mental health crises. With this goal in mind, Memorial Behavioral Health has opened a Mental Health Crisis clinic to help people get the compassionate assistance they need outside of the emergency room. Individuals who have immediate behavioral health needs will receive point in time crisis intervention.
If you are assisting a person who may benefit from the Mental Health Crisis Clinic, please call 217-525-1064. People are also able to walk in for services through the front door. This clinic, located in our facility at 710 N. Eighth Street in Springfield and is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
