LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Lafayette Crisis Center is merging with Mental Health America. Officials announced the merger Thursday afternoon at a news conference.
The Center’s phone line and operations will remain the same, but will be moved to Mental Health America’s community building. The Center’s employees will also be brought in as part of the merger.
Mental Health America Board of Trustees Chair Linda Rohrman said the merger will broaden their abilities to help people.
“By adding the Crisis Center to our program, it enables us to reach more people through education, supportive services and to let them know how important it is to seek help for mental health issues,” said Rohrman.
Talks of the merger began earlier this year, following the retirement of Crisis Center executive director Jane McCann.
Rohrman said they hope to have the Crisis Center moved in by fall.
