Open House set for Vevay’s new Community Mental Health Center

15

Community Mental Health Center, Inc., will host an open house this Wednesday, July 9th, for its Vevay Office, located at 1037 West Main Street.

The event is from 4-6 p.m. Tours of the facility will be offered, and light refreshments will be available.

After having been in offices located at 205 West Main Street, near the Switzerland County Courthouse, for many years, CMHC staff members moved last September to new offices at 1037 West Main Street.

Increased demand for CMHC’s services in Switzerland County in recent years led to an increase in services and staffing, which necessitated more space.

Staff members have been settling into the new offices and now want to invite community members to see the facility and to share in CMHC’s success in providing needed services in Switzerland County.

The location houses nearly 7,500 square feet and includes a lobby area, restrooms, group room, conference room, two “hub areas” for case managers and other staff members, more than a dozen individual offices, a kitchen/break room area, and storage space.

Staff members from Outpatient Services, Intensive Family Services, Community Support Services, and Systems of Care are located in the facility.

CMHC has had a presence in Vevay since 1974. In addition to the offices at 1037 West Main Street, the Center has two Community Support Services permanent housing facilities at 503 Pearl Street and 513 Pearl Street.

“CMHC is committed to delivering professional, accessible, quality heath care services,” said CMHC Executive Director Tom Talbot. “The Vevay facility provides us with a wonderful venue from which we are able to address the mental health and addiction needs of the residents of Vevay and the surrounding area. We value working with our community partners, and we especially thank the Community Foundation of Switzerland County for their generous support in helping us purchase furniture for the office.”

All CMHC services are provided without regard to race, religion, disability, gender, color, age, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political belief, status as a veteran, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law.
