Envisioning the Benton County Crisis Center

View the Info Sheet

Benton County Behavioral Health is working to create a voluntary walk-in treatment-centered facility that may serve as an alternative to the emergency room, which provides stabilization for individuals experiencing mental health crisis, along with referrals and support for ongoing behavioral health services.

The crisis center will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year and serve all agesregardless of ability to pay, no appointment needed. It is designed to serve anyone who needs a break from stressors to be connected to services and support and will have a “no-wrong-door” approach to support individuals who are having mental health crises for any number of reasons. 

The crisis center is a project of Benton County’s Justice System Improvement Program (JSIP), a multi-year effort to improve outcomes in our communities. Addressing mental health needs is a primary focus of JSIP’s vision for enhanced County programs and facilities. The crisis center may serve as a resource on calls to law enforcement that involve a mental health concern.

The Benton County Crisis Center will be located at 240 NW 4th Street in downtown Corvallis, central to transportation, community service providers, and emergency services.

Services may include:

  • Crisis assessments
  • Safe and supportive break from stressors for individuals experiencing a mental health crisis
  • Short-term therapy
  • Skills training and case management
  • Referrals for ongoing treatment and community resources

The project began in April 2022 when a site was selected. In May 2022, Gerding Builders was selected as the General Contractor, and Benton County formed a Design Committee of community stakeholders of the future crisis center. Demolition on the site was completed in October 2022, and schematic drawings in November 2022. Design and construction sets were completed in early 2023.

Benton County Behavioral Health has formed a design committee to help inform the design process by providing a crystal clear understanding of the unique needs of Benton County residents and what can be accomplished with the new crisis center.
