Turning Point is an 8 bed crisis home that provides mental health services in a less intensive environment than an inpatient setting. The average length of stay is 3 to 5 days. The program is voluntary for those 18 and older. We aim to provide an option for 24-hour mental health care without the need for Court Commitment.
