Mental Health Resources

The Illinois Department of Human Services has launched a support line called Call4Calm that is reachable via text.  Individuals who want to speak with a mental health professional can text the word “TALK” or “HABLAR” (for Spanish speakers) to 552020.  Within 24 hours, that individual will receive a call from a mental health professional employed by a local community health center.

People can also text other terms, like “unemployment” or “food” or “shelter” to the same number to receive information on how to navigate and access supports and services.  Call4Calm is free, and individuals who use it can remain anonymous.

Additionally, the Illinois State Board of Education has listed several School Wellness Mental Health Resources at https://www.isbe.net/Pages/MentalHealthResources.aspx.
