People in the Joplin area who are struggling with their mental health will soon have an immediate place to go for help besides the emergency room.
Ozark Center Urgent Behavioral Solutions, or UBS, opens Thursday, October 1, at 3230 Wisconsin Ave., Suite A, in Joplin. It’s an urgent care for those with behavioral health issues.
Ozark Center’s chief administrative officer, Vicky Mieseler, said it’s designed to keep those with mental health issues out of the emergency room. And it gives them a place geared toward them.
