About this Mental Health Resource Guide
This guide is to aid you, your family or neighbor in the event you should find yourself needing assistance in dealing with 1) depression, anxiety and any other mental health concern and/or 2) any crisis or potential crises with any of these concerns.
In a recent Healthier Park Ridge survey done by the Healthier Park Ridge Coalition and Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, these concerns were found to be the top problems affecting the members of our community.
The survey also indicated that the top services needed but not received by individuals or their family members were 1) counseling and support services, 2) support groups for coping with daily living and stress and 3) mental health services, especially for seniors but also for youth.
The #1 reason identified by the survey that these services were not received was because the individual or family member did not know where to go for services. This brochure is intended to bridge that information gap and provide a resource for accessing mental health resources.
