South Lane Mental Health plays an integral role in the community’s healthcare continuum and social services network. We take our role as a good community partner seriously and work collaboratively wherever possible. We have been involved in a number of projects with the City of Cottage Grove, Cottage Grove Police Department, Cottage Grove Community Medical Center, South Lane Medical Group, and with a variety of local businesses and churches.
Since 1993, South Lane Mental Health has assisted individuals experiencing psychiatric emergencies at Cottage Grove Hospital. An agency counselor evaluates the situation and provides crisis care. Over the years, South Lane Mental Health has diverted hundreds of patients from psychiatric hospitalizations to outpatient treatment in the community.
Cottage Grove’s First Presbyterian Church has been a key community partner since the inception of South Lane Mental Health. It was a church member that donated to us our first building, the Bohemia Residential Center (BRC). The church also leases the apartments behind the BRC to South Lane Mental Health at no charge. In addition, a church member sits on the agency’s board of directors.
