Burrell Behavioral Health in Springfield is breaking ground on a new facility that will cater towards the area’s youth.
On Monday, officials held a ground-breaking ceremony at the new location on North National near Perimeter Behavioral Hospital.
The Youth Services Center will include a behavioral crisis center, hospitalization services, outpatient care and residential facilities.
The company says the center will be for children ages 13-17 experiencing mental health or drug use problems.
A timetable for completion of the project and a potential opening have not been released.
