New center provides outpatient, walk-in behavioral health services and resources to the Reno community
SilverSummit Healthplan and Summit Behavioral Health Systems announced the grand opening of the Mill Street Care Center, which is now open to community members seeking assistance with behavioral healthcare, an issue that continues to rise in the community among residents following the pandemic. The center recently celebrated with a ribbon-cutting event featuring Reno Municipal Court Judge Christopher Hazlett-Stevens and Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam.
A partnership between SilverSummit Healthplan and Summit Behavioral Health Systems, the Mill Street Care Center offers a number of services including immediate access to behavioral health services, crisis assessments, one-on-one counseling, care coordination, transportation services to mental health appointments, and group therapy. The center also provides access to basic needs such as shower facilities, laundry services, snacks, and hot meals available daily. Individuals who are not SilverSummit members may still visit the center for respite or care coordination, and a case manager will assist them with a referral to other facilities.
“We want our clients to feel connection and believe their lives can change for the better, so we created a place where they can feel welcome. People can come and take a breath and have their most basic needs met – like eating a hot meal, taking a shower, getting out of the elements, and regaining a sense of humanity,” said Jacqueline Early, executive clinical director of Summit Behavioral Health Systems and the Mill Street Care Center. “While here they can connect with our team to continue their journey towards a safe and secure life that we all hope for. We at Summit Behavioral Health connect, we serve, we hope for them – so they may have hope for themselves!”
“As we all know, many people already deal with some of these struggles, but the numbers have grown since the pandemic struck our world,” said Nicole King, vice president of community solutions at SilverSummit Healthplan. “The Mill Street Care Center will be here to welcome individuals, offer the appropriate services for them, and then follow up with case management to ensure they are being helped. By partnering with Summit Behavioral Health, SilverSummit is continuing our mission of improving the quality of life in our community, one person at a time.”
The Mill Street Care Center is located at 855 Mill Street in Reno and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. The facility is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information, please visit www.sbhslasvegas.com.
