Monarch recently expanded its crisis services in Guilford County. The agency is now licensed to provide care and crisis assessment for more than 24-hour periods to individuals who are experiencing a mental health emergency, cannot manage their symptoms alone, and do not need to be admitted into a hospital. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services granted Monarch a license to become a Facility Based Crisis Center, one of the state’s few emergency holding and crisis assessment programs. The eight-bed crisis assessment unit provides a safe environment where people who are in crisis and are under involuntary commitment, can be assessed by qualified staff who will continue to work with them until they can be safely transferred to a hospital or re-assessed and released to a community-level of care, according to Ben Millsap, clinical director.

Region 1Allison Wilson, clinical program director, joined officials from Stanly Community College (SCC) during the college’s Free College Day earlier this summer. SCC offered several free courses to anyone who attended in an effort to provide prospective students with a glimpse of college. During the event, Allison assisted with a session on depression. She helped to lead three different education sessions, which provided information on depression, what it is and some recommended treatments for the disorder. Allison also administered depression screenings for those who participated.
