Columbia Wellness will be closing the Crisis Support Unit in Hoquiam.
The Hoquiam Police Department forwarded an announcement from Grays Harbor County Crisis Services onto the public, announcing that crisis services from Columbia Wellness will end December 12.
According to the announcement, Columbia Wellness said that despite serving hundreds in Grays Harbor since May of 2016, when the facility began providing access to mental health crisis services, the number served does not support the costs to sustain the operation.
Columbia Wellness says that Grays Harbor County officials, Great Rivers Behavioral Health Organization and Columbia Wellness have been planning and working on solutions to sustain the Crisis Support Unit.
Great Rivers Behavioral Health Organization, Crisis Support Unit staff and Grays Harbor County officials have been notified of these sustainability issues and operational plans moving forward.
