A new mental health facility in La Crosse gets a financial boost from one of the city’s hospitals.

Tellurian Behavioral Health has received a grant of $35,000 from the Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse to open an urgent care location in the 1700 block of Jackson Street.

“A lot of times when you have facilities, similar to this one, it’s in neighborhoods, or programs that are not as nice as this,” said Tellurian CEO Kevin Florek, who took part in a check presentation at the new facility Tuesday. “This is a beautiful, home-like environment, where people can feel at home.” and spoke about the welcoming atmosphere of the building:

Tellurian staffers gave a tour to visitors, including media members, at the urgent care mental health clinic, within a few blocks of the Mayo hospital.

Jennifer Livingston with Mayo said the health center has been working with Tellurian on the new facility.

“Mental health, as we know, is a crisis for our entire community. for our entire country,” Livingston said, “and no one place is gonna solve this alone, and partnerships are key.”

The new facility was converted from a former dental clinic. Up to eight patients could stay at the Tellurian at any one time.
