Crisis center to relocate

The Oklahoma County Crisis Intervention Center, which has operated at 1200 NE 13 for several years, will begin providing services at a new location effective Wednesday. The new site is at 2625 General Pershing Blvd., less than one mile east of State Fair Park. The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, which operates the crisis center, is leasing space from NorthCare for the new facility. In addition to the 16-bed inpatient unit, OCCIC also will have a mental health “urgent care” section, where people can stay for up to 24 hours to receive psychological stabilization services. For more information about accessing crisis services, call 522-8100.

Asthma event scheduled

An asthma awareness event called The Asthma Community Day will be open to the public from 9 a.m. until noon on Sept. 21 in the atrium of the OU Children's Center, 1200 Children's Ave., Oklahoma City. The event will feature several educational booths including those sponsored by the OSDH Chronic Disease Asthma Prevention and Control Program, the American Lung Association, and the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust. Asthma is a serious and sometimes deadly disease, for which there is no cure. About 292,000 adult Oklahomans are currently diagnosed with asthma, according to 2012 data from the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. For more information about asthma or other chronic diseases, visit the OSDH website at, or call the OSDH Chronic Disease Service at 271-4072.
