Hoyleton Youth and Family Services, located in Fairview Heights, IL, has secured a grant from the Dept of Human Services to support mobile crisis services in St. Clair County, IL.
In an effort to continue their transition to a human service organization Hoyleton was selected to by the state of Illinois to become a Mobile Crisis Agency. Being a provider of this state program will allow Hoyleton to respond to citizens in the St Clair County area while they are in a mental health crisis and help them receive support during their entire crisis as well as offer follow up services.
Crisis Care 590 is a DHS funded program. The goal of the program is to establish a continuum of crisis services available for anyone, anywhere, anytime. The program is expected to receive and respond to requests for emotional support received by the Call4Clm system that was established in 2020.
This is a 3-year project begins with Hoyleton building the capacity to provide Mobile Crisis Team Services. Year one includes time to recruit, hire and train staff members in Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) best practices. To develop a program manual consistent with the SAMHSA guidelines as well as time to track the number of people who access crisis continuum. Once the team is built and trained they will respond as a crisis team within St Clair County. This project timeline is in development.
Since 1895 Hoyleton Youth & Family Services has grown to become one of Southern Illinois’ leaders in providing emotional and mental health services for every stage of youth and family development.
