Cook County officials are addressing mental health challenges during May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month.

They are working to strengthen the safety net of services available to those in need.

At a press conference, county officials highlighted the additional financial investments made this year to expand their commitment to mental health services.

One of the recent initiatives announced by Board President Toni Preckwinkle is the placement of behavior health coordinators at public housing sites.

This move aims to remove barriers to access and provide support to individuals in need.

During the press conference, speakers discussed the impact of mental health challenges on violence and substance abuse.

They emphasized the importance of a comprehensive and holistic response to mental health issues.

Faith leaders and various stakeholders are actively involved in spreading the message that there is a safety net of help available and are working towards making it stronger.

The event took place at the headquarters of Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities (TASC), which also announced its expansion of mental health services.

It is part of the collective effort to address mental health challenges and provide necessary resources for care and prevention in communities.

For those seeking help or support, the National Lifeline at 9-8-8 is always available.

Further updates from the event will be provided in the next hour.
