Decriminalizing Mental Illness

In spring 2020, The Bridge Center for Hope will open a crisis stabilization center for East Baton Rouge Parish residents. The opening will signal more than five years of research and planning to create a place where people in crisis can be stabilized, then placed with providers for treatment. The center will fill a gap in services. Other services under this project are already helping people with mental health challenges and addictions. One is the David O’Quin Pre-Trial Diversion and Recovery Program. Operated for more than two years, the program diverts people who have been picked up for minor crimes to treatment.
