(This amendment provides funding to develop a crisis stabilization program at Catawba Hospital for seriously mentally ill adults. The program will be a collaborative effort between the Blue Ridge Community Services Board and the Hospital using an existing house on the grounds of Catawba Hospital. This program is intended to assist clients in crisis with the goal of averting hospitalization, resulting in decreased bed day utilization by Blue Ridge Community Services.)
