Crisis Intervention

The Bridge Crisis Intervention Services:

Crisis Team performs front-line crisis intervention for run-away, locked out, homeless and ungovernable youth. Services are available 24 hours a day every day of the year. Crisis services allow youth to be diverted from the child welfare and criminal justice systems. Our professional staff provides immediate assessment of the facts leading to the crisis and decides whether the client can return home safely or be temporarily housed in a shelter. The family may follow up with counseling at The Bridge to reduce the chance of future crisis situations at home.

The Bridge provides crisis services to six northwest suburban Cook County townships: Palatine, Schaumburg, Barrington, Elk Grove, Maine and Hanover. Call 847-359-7490 and ask to speak to the on-call crisis worker to access these services. If you are calling after hours, please contact 847-776-3720 to be forwarded to the on-call Crisis staff member.
