WESTWOOD, NJ -- CBH Care, the North Jersey-based community mental and behavioral health service that provides assistance to some 200 outpatient consumers every day, operates an emergency wellness center to assist hundreds of people when they experience a dangerous mental health crisis. The Westwood based center provides immediate counseling by matching individuals up with out-patient services. These critical programs are being recognized by local community leaders as a lifeline for residents in their time of need.
“CBH Care’s Wellness Center is a well-known and well respected service in Westwood,” said Westwood Mayor John Birkner. “I think, due to a general lack of information about mental healthcare, many communities worry about having mental health clinics in their backyard, but everyone I know in Westwood sees CBH Care and the Wellness Center as a great asset for our community. We are a Stigma Free community and having an advocacy organization like CBH Care here allows us to spread important information on mental wellness and also to provide accessible care to residents in need.”
“Preventing, or helping to head off mental health crises is key to the ongoing success of millions of Americans dealing with mental health disorders,” said CBH Care Executive Director Sue Devlin. “Our Wellness and Support Center has crisis counselors onsite to help individuals find a safe outpatient setting to continue their treatment. We have been operating this center since 2013, and it is a service we are proud to offer to individuals 18 and older with a diagnosable mental illness to keep them and their families moving forward.”
The Wellness Center is located at 569 Broadway in Westwood and professionals can be reached at 201-957-1800. The center has rapid implementation teams with dedicated staff who set patients up for success after their time in the center and outpatient settings.
