The Division of Mental Health is excited to announce the FY24 grantees for the Living Room Program. The Living Room Program is for individuals experiencing a mental health crisis and provides services and supports designed to reduce the need for psychiatric hospitalization. The Living Room provides a safe, inviting, home-like atmosphere where individuals may calmly process the crisis event, as well as learn and apply wellness strategies in the future.

The Living Room Program is staffed by Recovery Support Specialists, people who are trained to utilize their lived expertise of recovery from mental illness to support others. Individuals seeking services at Living Rooms are screened for safety by a mental health professional when they arrive and before their departure. Individuals may refer themselves, or be referred by police, fire, emergency departments, or other organizations.

DMH has more than tripled its investment in this pillar of the crisis continuum of care in this new fiscal year, with more than $25 million supporting these 22 locations. As part of this increased investment, DMH is working to ensure that all Living Room Programs can offer around-the-clock support to people in crisis. At this time, not all Living Rooms operate 24/7; please contact each agency to determine their current hours of operation.

  The Division of Mental Health is grateful to its community partners for their support and engagement, and looks forward to continuing to serve Illinois with a robust continuum of crisis care services.
