Trinity Services’ Trinity Counseling Center is offering free mental health consultations to people in its coverage area in Will, Grundy and southern Cook counties during the COVID-19 pandemic. In recognition of the increased need for support during the COVID-19 crisis, Trinity Services and the Trinity Counseling Center want to help.
“We are offering these services because we recognize that this situation is difficult and scary,” Bonnie Hassan, director of the Trinity Counseling Center, said in a news release from Trinity Services.
“As a result, many people are feeling increased stress, fear and anxiety. Providing for the mental health needs of our community and increasing people’s connection to needed resources is an important part of the work we do.”
These free consultations are being provided remotely by phone or video, and they will be offered as long as Gov. JB Pritzker’s stay-at-home order is in place.
“If someone is nervous about reaching out, they can expect a safe place where they can share thoughts and feelings confidentially, receive support and access resources,” Hassan said in the release.
Because the Trinity Counseling Center does not know what the demand for these services will be, have patience as staff members work to schedule appointments.
To talk to someone, receive resources or learn more, contact Hassan at email@example.com or 815-722-4384.
