While the Center for Human Services provides a wide array of services, there may be times when a different provider may better meet your needs. Our screening specialist will be happy to discuss your needs and “point you in the right direction” if you need services from another organization.
 

24 Hour Crisis Team

The Crisis team provides quick, on-site counseling and evaluation to individuals in crisis situations.  Team members travel to all parts of McLean County and function as a mobile crisis unit.  The Crisis Team is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Team members work closely with law enforcement agencies, emergency room personnel, and other social service agencies.  The Team also assesses the need for psychiatric hospitalization.  One goal of the program is to intervene, stabilize, and arrange for appropriate services so that unnecessary hospitalization can be avoided.
