BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) –– RI International is hosting an open house for its Bridge Center for Hope Behavioral Health Crisis Care Center, Mobile Crisis Response Center, and Community Brief Crisis Response Program Monday morning.
The open house will feature speakers from the Governor’s office, the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH), and the Mayor’s office. There they will speak on many existing services and how the partnership with the LDH builds on those services to assist community members in crisis.
There are some limitations. Those services are available to individuals in Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Pointe Coupee, West Baton Rouge, and West Feliciana parishes. The LA Department of Health has a complete list of qualifications on its website.
But Shawne Langston-Emery, Louisiana State Director of RI International, says the open house is an opportunity for families to see the available care. She adds that the Bridge Center for Hope is open to anyone in need and will do what they can to stabilize a guest and put them on a path to a happy and healthy life.
