Building Bridges

If you are experiencing a mental hardship and are living in the Jackson, MS area, the following organization may be able to lend a helping hand:

The Central Mississippi Residential Center (CMRC) provides a fully integrated continuum of mental health services on a community level to minimize the need for loSad Ladyng-term institutional placement or hospitalization.  Through offering these services, CMRC hopes to bridge the gap for those struggling with a mental illness transition from hope to recovery.

While actively confronting the stigma of mental illness, CRMC partners with community organizations to offer multi-faceted education and prevention programs. They believe that everyone is able to improve their level of functioning with the help of effective treatment in a safe and positive setting. The services offered through the Central Mississippi Residential Center are as follows:

Adult Day Services (Footprints) – Caring for a loved one suffering with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia can be overwhelming for many families.  CRMC offers respite care through Footprints, a day center that offers a safe, caring and activity oriented place for individuals who suffer from these diseases. By supporting families and caregivers, Footprints enables participants to continue living at home and avoid pre-mature placement outside the family.

Community Living Program – CMRC’s Community Living program provides people with serious mental illnesses the opportunity to live in both group home and supervised housing settings.  These living arrangements are designed to support these individuals as they progress toward self-sufficient, independent living.

Crisis Stabilization Unit – Central Mississippi Residential Center’s Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) is a sixteen bed short-term psychiatric stabilization program for adult men and women with mental health needs. Residents may be voluntarily admitted or be admitted through court order. The CSU aims to reduce the need for placement in a long-term facility by offering early stabilization services.

For more information about what the Central Mississippi Residential Center has to offer, contact them by calling (601) 683-4200.  You can also check them out on the web at http://www.cmrc.state.ms.us/.
