Crisis Center Groundbreaking

The Board held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the Portage Crisis Center expected to be completed in 2026 with services provided by Coleman Health Services. This project will offer expanded mental health crisis services for youth and families. Funding has been provided by the State of Ohio, Ohio Dept of Mental Health & Addiction Services, and local dollars.

This center will renovate the crisis stabilization unit that is located at 3920 Lovers Lane in Ravenna. The crisis stabilization unit will have 10 single beds with private bathrooms where people can stay for up to 2 weeks as a step-down from or in lieu of hospitalization. The center will also have a 23-hour involuntary hold area for adults and family rooms for children and will feature a first responder drop off center. Coleman Health Services will provide services in both areas.
