New Youth Crisis Program

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

The Center for Mental Health is putting a state grant to use by taking interest in children's mental health. Currently in Great Falls there is no place for troubled youth or children with special needs to be placed when it is deemed necessary to remove them from their environment. The Great Falls Center for mental health plans to change that by starting their own community network to keep troubled youth in a more comfortable environment while getting them help.

"And it's really to help communities to develop crisis services and a plan and a coalition within the community that fills the gap right now for our children," says Center Director, Sidney Blair.

The program will in fact be 24 hours a day every week in order to best help families when an incident may arise. The Center for Mental Health has hired councilors with training to handle a domestic dispute from a child, a program that Great Falls has not had before.

If you are interested in learning more you can contact the Center at (406) 761-2100.
