Monarch’s Youth Crisis Center is Now Open and Accepting Young Patients
North Carolina’s first-ever Youth Crisis Center, located at 1810 Back Creek Dr. in Charlotte, is now open to offer help and hope to the families of the tens of thousands of young people, ages 6-17, who are in need of urgent mental health care around the clock in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties.
Children and teens experiencing a mental health and/or substance use crisis and need 24/7 triage, assessment and stabilization in a secure, nurturing in-patient setting can now receive that quality care closer to home in the newly-constructed, 16-bed center. Youth in need of inpatient psychiatric assessment and treatment have been sent to Wake, Onslow, or New Hanover counties in the past because no such facility existed near Charlotte.
The Youth Crisis Center will provide access to timely, age-appropriate mental health care both during a time of mental health crisis and beyond, while simultaneously reducing the number of unnecessary emergency room visits, which can prove costly and often ineffective for young people in need of help, hope and support.
