The Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Mental Health has created a “CESSA Section” for our 988 planning page in an effort to ensure an accurate and consistent understanding of the planning that is underway for the Crisis Care Continuum in Illinois.  We have posted our first edition of  the Community Emergency Services and Supports Act (CESSA) Frequently Asked Questions on the page, and our intention is to provide updates, regularly, as the process continues.  We hope that you will find this additional information useful as we proceed through the planning process over the next few months.

The 988 Planning Page link is:  and the CESSA FAQs are posted at:

Please share this broadly with your own networks, and thank you for your partnership in this important planning work.
