Crisis Line-24 Hour Crisis Intervention
The Crisis Line serves as the first point of contact for callers in need of immediate assistance and is a crucial part of the mental health emergency services in McHenry County.
Crisis line professionals are available to help people with intense personal, family and/or marital problems. These problems might include
- major life changes
- mental illness
- thoughts of suicide
Calling the crisis line provides an opportunity for a person to talk about their problems and explore options. Targeted referrals are given, linking the caller to appropriate services. Often, just talking through a problem helps the caller. If the caller needs more than the services of the crisis line, the caller can be referred for a face-to-face assessment through our Crisis Onsite Program.
