FORT WAYNE, IND. (Indiana's NewsCenter) – A local counseling and psychiatric center announces that 53 positions will be eliminated through organizational restructuring.

A change in state funding from July is now having its effect on mental health center Park Center. The result is $2.4 million being cut out of the last half of their fiscal year budget.

Park Center has restructured services to try to maintain as much care as possible with the reduced staff.

Park Center currently has approximately 400 staff and budget of $24 million.
