Behavioral Health to Celebrate Opening of Adult Services at the South Fulton Service Center | Print |

Renovated space expected to contribute to the estimated 3,000 uninsured clients
to be served this year

Fulton County Commissioners and the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities will celebrate the opening of Adult Behavioral Health Services in South Fulton with a ribbon cutting Thursday, June 28, 2018. at 10:30 a.m. The ribbon cutting will be held at the South Fulton Service Center located at 5600 Stonewall Tell Road in College Park.   The ceremony completes a transition designed to serve more adults and children, and widen the network of locations where adults can receive Behavioral Health Services.

The Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities has entered into a contract with River Edge Behavioral Health to provide adult services at its locations in South Fulton, North Fulton, and the Center for Health & Rehabilitation. The South Fulton Service Center clinic is currently open and serving the public.   The newly renovated space is expected to contribute to the estimated 3,000 uninsured individuals to be served this year.

District 4 Fulton County Commissioner Natalie Hall, the Executive Sponsor of the Strategic Priority area "All People Are Healthy," expressed her excitement about opening the new Behavioral Health Center. “We anticipate that we will effectively serve a greater number of Fulton County residents." said Commissioner Hall.   She added, “As we observe the need for access to Behavioral Health services through the tragedies that we see and hear about daily, we want residents to know that help is available and that there is no shame in asking for help to work through emotional or family issues.”

County Manager Dick Anderson described the renovated space as appealing and comfortable for those who are using the service. “We consider this space as another example of our strategy of renovating, repairing and improving county facilities to ensure a positive customer experience,” stated Anderson.

“The South Fulton Service Center Behavioral Health Clinic completes our department’s transition to expanded services provided in collaboration with our outside contractors serving children, emerging adults and adults,” stated Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Director LaTrina Foster.  

Following approval of the South Fulton Service Center as a Behavioral Health Clinic, contractors hired through the Department of Real Estate & Assets Management (D.R.E.A.M.) renovated about 9,100 square feet of the Service Center’s first floor to create the new clinic. The $1.2 million in renovations included partial demolition of existing walls, ceilings and floors to make way for new drywall, wall finishes, doors and door hardware.   The renovations also included furniture, and numerous mechanical, electrical and plumbing modifications.
