Crisis & Counseling Centers, which serves people with substance abuse and mental health issues, recently announced the addition of three new board members.

Somerset County Chief Deputy Dale Lancaster, Kim Lane, an assistant professor of mental health and human services at the University of Maine at Augusta and Susan Cover, Kennebec Journal city editor, were all named to the board, according to a press release from the organization.

“The addition of these three members further diversifies our board,” said Dana Hamilton, board president.

Each board member will serve a three-year term, from 2014-17.

The nonprofit agency is the sole provider of crisis services for Kennebec and Somerset counties and administers 24-hour-a-day crisis services to those in need.
