COVID 19 SUPPORT FOR MEDICAL PERSONNEL & FIRST RESPONDERS: People are here to support your heroic efforts. Call - 618.381.5173
All Medical personnel and First Responders involved in the care of OVID individuals are under unprecedented trauma and stress. Many times they have no one to talk to about the challenges and pressures they face.  Sometimes what’s needed most in difficult times is someone to talk to; someone who will listen and help persons consider their options and resources. This is not a crisis line, but is a source of support to help individuals work through current stress and anxiety. Trained mental health volunteers from our area are ready to talk and provide resources for managing during these difficult times.  Please call 618.381.5173 so that we may direct you to a caring listener.

The Illinois Department of Human Services’ Mental Health Division has launched a free-of-charge emotional support text line, Call, for Illinois residents experiencing stress and mental health issues related to COVID-19. Individuals who would like to speak with a mental health professional can text “TALK” to 5-5-2-0-2-0, or for Spanish, “ABLER” to the same number: 5-5-2-0-2-0.
Call is free to use, and individuals will remain anonymous. Once a resident sends a text to the hotline, within 24 hours they will receive a call from a counselor employed by a local community mental health center to provide support.
Individuals can also text 5-5-2-0-2-0, with key words such as “unemployment” or “food” or “shelter” and will receive information on how to navigate and access supports and services.
