Illinois Crisis Prevention Network
Trinity Services partners with The Hope Institute for Children & Families to provide crisis intervention to those in need through the Illinois Crisis Prevention Network. This innovative initiative provides consultation, training, support and expertise in the area of crisis intervention to those in need in Illinois communities.
ICPN is staffed by skilled clinicians who work with individuals with severe behaviors who are at risk of losing their current living arrangement. The behaviors can disrupt the environment, take an emotional toll on everyone living or working there, and make it very difficult for families or staff to function effectively and work with the individuals involved. Team members can provide strategies to reduce or eliminate the behavioral issues, training for staff or caregivers to cope and work effectively with the clients, and help locate resources in the community.

The Living Room
Trinity Services' Living Room, located at 14315 S. 108th Avenue, Suite 222, in Orland Park, IL, offers a safe, welcoming, nonclinical environment for people in crisis to deescalate from a mental health crisis or for people experiencing daily life stressors.
The program is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year from 10:00 a.m.- 10:00 p.m. Click the link above or here for more information.
If it is after hours and you need immediate assistance, call 911, SAMHSA at 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
Mobile Crisis Response Unit
Trinity Services partnered with the Orland Park Police Department to create a Mobile Crisis Response Unit to ensure that the mental health needs of all residents are met. The MCRU allows for real-time, thorough and in-depth assistance for those in need, when and where they need it most.
Nationally, adults with severe mental illness account for 1 in 4 people killed in police encounters. This program changes the way Orland Park public safety personnel approach the needs of those suffering from mental illness. The MCRU integrates into the Village’s public safety infrastructure by dispatching a mental health crisis worker to respond alongside public safety personnel to crises involving people experiencing mental illness and substance abuse problems. When the MCRU is activated, law enforcement will play a supporting role, instead of the primary role. This acknowledges the general consensus that mental health crises should not be criminal justice matters.
