Centegra crisis program recognized by national provider

WOODSTOCK – McHenry County residents calling a national suicide hotline will now be directed closer to home.

The McHenry County Crisis Program, a mental health care service administered by Centegra Health System, was recently named a "Network Provider" by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

The designation means that any McHenry County resident contemplating suicide who seeks support through the national suicide hotline will be redirected to a McHenry County Crisis Center professional.

Crisis line professionals – who are multi-disciplined professionals who have completed intensive training programs and earned master’s degrees in mental health – are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist people with intense personal or family problems, depression, major life changes, anxiety or thoughts of suicide. 

Callers can also be directed to additional services, including a ace-to-face assessment through the crisis on-site program.

The McHenry County crisis line can be reached at 800-892-8900.
