The McHenry County Mental Health Board is offering crisis counseling for people affected by the house explosion June 11 in Marengo.
Crisis counselors will stop by the investigation site periodically as investigation begins into the explosion that leveled two homes and damaged 50 others and fortunately resulted in no deaths.
Some victims of the explosion may experience new feelings of grief and stress brought on by the investigation, Mental Health Board Executive Director Scott Block said.
“Together, we wish to provide access to any additional mental health counseling services or resources necessary to help individuals deal with any grief and stress concerns that stem from the event,” Block said.
People needing counseling resources to cope with the event can call the McHenry County Crisis Line at 800-892-8900, or the Mental Health Board at 815-455-2828.
