The Benton County Crisis Center is now located in the Benton County Humphrey Hoyer Building at 557 NW Monroe Ave. in Corvallis.

The center provides walk-in crisis counseling services provided by Benton County. It is for anyone experiencing a mental health crisis; clients can show up between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and see that day’s counselor, according to a Benton County press release.

“The Humphrey Hoyer building is right next to the downtown bus station and library, which means easier access for clients,” Benton County Crisis Manager Eric Bowling said in the press release. “The temporary move will make a good home until we can move into the future crisis center where we can expand our services even further.”

According to the press release, Benton County is working to build a new permanent crisis center, which will be located at 240 NW 4th Street in downtown Corvallis. The services are expected to start in Summer 2024.

The future crisis center will expand operating hours to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will also add crisis stabilization and respite services.

According to the Benton County website, the new site will serve as a low-barrier resource to all community members experiencing mental health crisis needs.

More information on the future crisis center is available on the Benton County website.
