Community Mental Health Closed for New Year Submitted: 12/31/2012
MINOCQUA - Mental health care will be less accessible in the Northwoods starting tomorrow.

Community Mental Health will close all four of its locations in 2013.

The organization had offices in Crandon, Eagle River, and two in Rhinelander.
Low-income patients could pay on a sliding scale. But former director Erv Teichmiller said that's no longer possible.

"The support for mental health has diminished over the past ten years. Those grants that have provided money have been more stringent in their qualifications."



That's why the clinics have to close.

Community Mental Health patients had to be reassigned to other for-profit centers.
