McLean County works to create a mental health database
McLean County has a mental health problem. Almost a decade ago, it acknowledged this fact with the Mental Health Action Plan, a roadmap for resolution.
But as recently as 2022 behavioral health is still a priority area, according to the Community Health Needs Assessments.
Funds — including tax dollars — have gone into improving resources, and various programs and expanded services have been introduced. There was theFUSE — Frequent User Systems Engagement — in 2019. Then in 2020 came the Triage Center, which recently became the Behavioral Health Urgent Care under the management of the Center for Human Services.
