Mental health agency builds facility
An outpatient mental health and substance abuse facility is being built in the region.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development said a groundbreaking was held last week for the facility in Hastings, southeast of Grand Rapids.
The agency provided a $3.7-million loan to support the project. The total cost is expected to be nearly $4.2 million.
The facility will consolidate services offered by the Barry County Community Mental Health Authority, which is contributing $463,000.
Services are currently spread throughout three separate leased facilities.
