Lane County Proposed Behavioral Health Stabilization Center

March 03 - The Lane County Stabilization Center project team is continuing their series of listening sessions during the month of March. The sessions are designed to hear from you, the community. The team hopes to collect feedback that represents what community members see as priorities and considerations in order to help shape the project as it moves forward.

Feedback gathered at the sessions will be logged anonymously and entered into a project management tool, to inform the Lane County Stabilization Center Steering Committee and decision makers while specifically guiding the next phase of community engagement.

The next two sessions will be held in-person in Eugene, at a central location, with that location and address to be disclosed upon registration. For those unable to attend in-person, please consider attending the virtual “Round Up” Listening Session held on Zoom, March 23rd.

Community Impact (Thursday, March 2, Noon-1:00 pm, In-person, lunch included):

Requesting input on how this resource can fill gaps within our existing behavioral health crisis services system, alignment with other programs, and how to be good community partners. How can this service meet needs that aren't currently met, while supporting the good work that is already happening? 

Programming (Wednesday, March 8, Noon-1:00 pm, In-person, lunch included):

Requesting input on how services are offered, intake and discharge process, staffing models and partnerships with other local organizations. How can this program prioritize person-centered, trauma informed care while meeting needs of individuals and the community at large?

Round Up (Thursday, March 23, Noon- 1:00 pm, Virtual, link available upon registration):

Taking an opportunity to highlight remaining topics, including those raised at a previous listening session that didn't receive enough time.

The Stabilization Center Project Team will provide a review of what happens next with the feedback collected and how individuals can get further involved. To register for a listening session, or simply to learn more about the project, please visit:

What is the Lane County Stabilization Center? A behavioral health facility offering 24/7 access to person-centered, trauma-informed services for anyone in Lane County experiencing a behavioral health related crisis that will serve all ages, regardless of insurance or citizenship status.  

The facility will be accessed by walk-in, referral from community organization, step-down from higher level of care, transported by mobile crisis response or via law enforcement as an alternative to incarceration. It will be located on MLK Jr. Blvd in Eugene Oregon, central to over 90% of Lane County residents within a 30 minute drive.

It is anticipated to launch by the end of 2024 to fill our community’s needs of additional and appropriate resources, with timely access, to address an increasing number of behavioral health related needs.
