As part of the first major investment in state mental health services since Governor Lurleen Wallace’s administration, Governor Ivey has prioritized establishing a mental health crisis continuum of care, with efforts in the Alabama Legislature led by House Majority Leader Nathaniel Ledbetter. This continuum of care, called the Alabama Crisis System of Care includes Crisis Centers.

The initial three Crisis Centers were funded with an $18 million appropriation in the FY2021 General Fund budget, with continued funding appropriated in the FY2022 and FY2023 General Fund budgets to support the existing Crisis Centers and add new Crisis Centers across the state.

The centers are designated places for communities, law enforcement, first responders, and hospitals to take an individual that is in mental health or substance abuse crisis.  At the center, the individual could receive stabilization, evaluation, and psychiatric services.
