Bridge of Hope Holds Grand Opening in Buckhannon

Posted: Updated:

A new mental health facility held its grand opening in Buckhannon today.

The Bridge of Hope is located right by the POE Bridge in the city.

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance operates this center.  It will act as a place where people can find a light meal or coffee, but more importantly, community support.

J.K. McAtee, Peer Support Specialist explained, "Community support provides an integral part of treatment.  Not that we provide treatment, but we give a place for people to go give and get support either before they are in crisis, or after they're in crisis."

The center will be open every weekday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
