Centerstone Crisis Stabilization Unit in Carterville is Relaunching in April

Hands grasped together giving support vibes.
Priscilla Dupreez

The Official Relaunch of Centerstone’s Crisis Stabilization Unit will be on Saturday, April 1st at 8 a.m. The CSU has undergone many changes since operations were suspended in early 2022, including implementation of new curricula and hiring and training team members who are trauma-informed. CSU provides supportive and stabilizing services for adults experiencing exacerbated mental health symptoms they are unable to manage in their current environment, but do not require inpatient care. There are eight beds at the CSU.

CSU admissions are scheduled 8:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. Monday-Friday with trauma informed crisis staff. To make a referral, please contact the CSU at (618) 319-6069. If you have any questions about the CSU, please contact Brittany Pinnon-Becker, Centerstone Statewide Crisis and Assessment Director, at Brittany.PinnonBecker@centerstone.org.
