Centerstone Rapid Response Program
Experiencing a mental health crisis can be scary, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Centerstone provides a continuum of crisis services where specially trained counselors are able to support you, your family, or loved ones who may be experiencing a crisis. One way we do this in Indiana is through the Rapid Response Program.
The Rapid Response Program makes mental health crisis care more accessible by:
- Connecting community members in-crisis to the STRIDE Center, so they can receive 24/7 mental health treatment from trained providers
- Offering mobile crisis care to meet people where they are during their time of need
- Providing specialized, wrap around services for individuals receiving mental health treatment
- Offering training and education to community members about mental health challenges and the local resources that are available to help those in need
If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis, connect with us now for help!
Description of CMHC grant targeted to partners and community members
The Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) Program aims to improve community mental wellness using a holistic approach. The CMHC Program is meant to improve mental health services following the COVID-19 pandemic and respond to the implementation of 988 in July, 2022. Through stakeholder partnerships, providing education, and bolstering services for community members in need, we believe we can sustainably improve the mental wellness of all the places we live, work, and play.

Education and Trainings
Our services are for people experiencing a mental health crisis, and for community members who want to know how to help our neighbors when they have a mental health challenge. Keep reading to learn about what we offer, the future of 988, and how you can be the change in your own county.
Beginning July 16, 2022, 988 will be the new number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Response to 988 will vary depending on your location. In Monroe County, Centerstone staff will be able to respond to 988 calls by connecting callers to a crisis specialist and/or deploying our mobile mental health crisis team.
