SHELDON, Iowa (KTIV) - A new mental health access center may soon be built in O'Brien County, Iowa.

Shane Walter, the CEO of Sioux Rivers Mental Health & Disabilities Services, spoke to the county's Board of Supervisors about the idea last Tuesday.

He said the center would provide a variety of services to multiple counties in the area. Those would include 23-hour observation, crisis assessment, help for those with substance abuse issues, mobile crisis, and peer support at some levels.

Walt said the facility would also use a "no eject, no reject" system, meaning they would accept anyone.

"We believe because of the no eject no reject philosophy that there should be a sizable in individuals who would access the services," said Shane Walter, CEO of Sioux Rivers Mental Health & Disabilities Services.

The facility would be located in Sheldon, Iowa.
