Lisa Hecker, LCSW,

The Merrill Center is a short-stay crisis stabilization unit (CSU) that offers 24/7 services to adults and youth. The Merrill Center aims to increase access to crisis services, reduce inpatient hospitalization, reduce the amount of time that law enforcement is involved in a mental health crisis, and strengthen the existing outpatient
behavioral health services.

Merrill Center is under contract with the San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health.
