Benton County Mental Health Crisis Services will be on the move in Corvallis later this month, officials announced.

The current location at 530 NW 27th St. will close April 25 and the new facility at the Benton County Humphrey Hoyer Building at 557 NW Monroe Ave. will open April 26.

The Crisis Services program has been providing walk-in crisis counseling services at the Benton County Health Services Building for over a decade. Anyone experiencing a mental health crisis can show up between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and request same-day crisis counseling.

The new location on Monroe Avenue will be temporary until the future Benton County Crisis Center building is completed on Northwest Fourth Street in downtown Corvallis. The project recently moved out of the design phase and into the permitting process, officials said, with the opening projected for the summer of 2024.

“The Humphrey Hoyer building is right next to the downtown bus station and library, which means easier access for clients,” Eric Bowling, Benton County crisis manager, said in a press release. “The temporary move will make a good home until we can move into the future crisis center where we can expand our services even further.”
