State Consolidation Mental Health Services

Americus Times-Recorder

Adult mental health services at Central State Hospital in Milledgeville are being permanently moved to other hospitals within the state’s behavioral health system, the state agency in charge of the hospital announced.

The hospital will continue serving people with developmental disabilities, those in its nursing home, and those in its maximum security forensic facility, which serves people referred for treatment by the courts. Since November 2009, people in the areas served by Central State who needed hospitalization have received care at other state facilities instead. Based on their needs and the clinical assessment of their doctors, planning has begun to move the remaining few adult mental health consumers at Central State to other hospitals or discharge them back to their communities by March 1.
