Description

CONTACT is a 24 hour 7 days a week Helpline that has been serving Northern Illinois for the past 35 years. All an individual in need has to do is dial our number and they will be connected to a Certified Line Specialist who is there to listen. CONTACT Certified Line Specialists take calls from abused or addicted adults, lonely seniors, teens, and individuals threatening suicide. In addition to our help line, we provide, Reassurance CONTACT, phone calls for medication reminders, daily check ins, Teen Crisis helpline, kid phone, and information and referrals. Training for volunteers will cover communication and listening skills, certification for Mental Health First Aid and also provide you with the opportunity to receive 3 credit hours from Highland Community College.
