Trinity Services’ Living Room plans Virtual Open House for May 18
Innovative program helps people deescalate from mental health crises in comfort
ORLAND PARK, IL — Trinity Services, Inc.’s Living Room is an innovative new program in Orland Park that gives people in crisis a safe, welcoming environment to deescalate from mental health or daily life stressors.
The program is planning a free Virtual Open House event for noon Tuesday, May 18, during which attendees can take a virtual tour of the space, hear from Living Room staff members and ask questions about the program.
To register for the Virtual Open House, visit www.trinityservices.org/LivingRoomTour.
Trinity’s Living Room is part of the Illinois Department of Human Services’ Division of Mental Health Living Room Program. There are approximately 20 similar programs throughout the state, and Trinity Services is proud to be part of this new initiative in mental health care.
The Living Room aims to divert people in crisis from emergency rooms and provide them with a comfortable, home-like environment in which to process the crisis, and learn and apply wellness strategies.
Recovery support specialists — people who have experienced and overcome crisis situations in the past — and therapists staff the program. Therapists screen guests upon arrival and prior to departure from the program, and recovery support specialists provide individualized support and counseling during a guest’s visit.
Guests may visit the Living Room on their own or may be referred to the program by emergency services personnel.
Trinity Services’ Living Room is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year from 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m. and is located at 14315 S. 108th Avenue, Suite 222, in Orland Park, IL. For more information about the Living Room, call (708) 981-3370 or email Program Director Carl Indovina at email@example.com.
