In its latest partnership, Burrell Behavioral Health will provide services for the newly opened Greene County Family Justice Center.
Through the partnership announced this week, Burrell will contribute on-site services at the Family Justice Center, which opened in October 2018 on the second floor of the Greene County Judicial Courts Facility, 1010 Boonville Ave. Services will include crisis counseling, help accessing resources and assistance applying for Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, according to a news release.
“These kinds of partnerships are truly the backbone of community mental health, allowing us to provide services when and where people are, moving beyond the model where care can only be sought in our offices,” Burrell President and CEO C.J. Davis said in the release. “We’re honored to work with the Greene County Family Justice Center to provide evidence-based treatment, and most importantly hope and healing, to families at their time of greatest need.”
The newest partnership for Burrell comes on the heels of the Springfield-based mental and behavioral health provider last month announcing a program for Springfield Public Schools. The SPS agreement utilizes a rule change last year allowing Medicaid-eligible mental health care services for Missouri students to be reimbursed in schools, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting.
Last year, Burrell announced it would provide mental health services at Mercy Springfield Communities. CoxHealth also partners with Burrell on mental health counseling and substance abuse treatment.
At the Family Justice Center, nearly 600 adult and child victims of family violence have been helped since the October opening. Services from the city, county and nonprofits are offered to victims at no cost to them, according to the release.
“The mission of the Greene County Family Justice Center is to provide comprehensive, client-centered empowerment services to survivors of domestic violence within our community. Our partnership with Burrell Health enhances every aspect of our mission,” said Jamie Willis, project coordinator of the center, in the release.
