The new Crisis Stabilization Unit at The Center in Mansfield was introduced to the public during an open house Tuesday.

It's the result of a $330,000 expansion project that took six months to complete. Funding came from a grant from the Ohio Department of Mental Health, the Richland County Mental Health Board, and Catalyst Life Services.

The unit will serve 200 to 300 people a year, mainly those suffering from deep depression and suicidal thoughts.

The Crisis Stabilization Unit is not intended for people experiencing psychotic episodes that cause them to lash out at others. They would be sent to MedCentral or a state psychiatric hospital.
