Local dignitaries, community leaders, board members and executive staff of Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority (OCCMHA), along with Common Ground and other OCCMHA partner agencies gathered recently to celebrate the new Resource & Crisis Center, which is located on the Oakland County Campus in Pontiac.

The event included a building tour, lunch and ribbon cutting ceremony.  The 48,000 square foot facility will be home to Common Ground’s crisis related services funded by Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority.  Services will include the 24-hour Resource and Crisis Helpline (800-231-1127), Emergency Psychiatric and ACCESS services, (currently located at Doctor’s Hospital in Pontiac); and the agency’s Crisis Residential Unit, (currently located in Royal Oak).  The new Resource and Crisis Center will open to the public on January 10, 2014.
