Since 1993, South Lane Mental Health has contracted with Cottage Grove Medical Center to provide round-the-clock emergency room response for individuals experiencing psychiatric crises.
In the emergency room, we assess the individual’s condition, make recommendations to hospital staff, and with the patient, determine whether psychiatric hospitalization is needed. Our staff work with the patient on a safety plan which includes making an appointment to be seen at South Lane Mental Health within 24 hours. South Lane Mental Health also offers a series of follow-up counseling sessions. The combination of crisis counseling, medications, and immediate access to treatment through South Lane Mental Health’s outpatient counseling program has diverted many people in crisis from in-patient hospitalization to community-based treatment.
Please note: Due to the Covid pandemic, we have suspended our on-site crisis services. We expect to be opening our offices fully in the next few months, however until then we do not have these services at our 1345 Birch Ave. location. Please check back here for the latest on when this program will resume at our office location. Until then, if you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, please go to the Cottage Grove PeaceHealth hospital at 1515 Village Drive in Cottage Grove. Our trained crisis counselors are available at this location. Thank you.
