Sheridan will soon have a little more room available to provide mental health care.

On July 1st, the Sheridan branch of Volunteers of America Northern Rockies will open its new Sub-Acute Crisis facility, located on Strahan Parkway, which is just south and on the other side of the highway from Sheridan College.

The facility can hold up to 12 individuals and will provide intermediate mental health care, which is the type of care between hospitalization and outpatient level services.

Heath Steel, who is the Executive Vice-President and Chief Business Officer of VOA Northern Rockies, says this type of care is being focused in the Sheridan area.

“Mental health needs are a lifetime need and what’s really important for a community to have is a multiple layered level of services. We would call that a continuum of care, so obviously we always want to treat people at the lowest level of care possible, but we want to know we can step up that care if and when they find themselves in crisis.”

Steel adds funding for the building was provided by the Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board.
