Crisis Hotlines

Crisis Hotlines are for those individuals who need immediate assistance in attempting to develop options for specific problems. Crisis Hotlines do limited problem-solving and refer callers to appropriate agencies.
The MHAGC referral and resource list is not an all-inclusive list and is subject to change. Each day our team will be adding new resources and building to our website. If you have trouble finding a referral within your area, we encourage you to call (312) 781-7780 for more information.
Reference to any treatment or therapy option, or to any program,
service, or treatment provider is not an endorsement by MHAGC.
