Mental Health Campaign

CCDPH is committed to building and supporting thriving communities. In January, we launched a year-round campaign called “Here to Hear You,” in partnership with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Chicago, to remove the stigma often associated with identifying and seeking help for mental health issues. Here to Hear You reminds Cook County residents they can thrive at any stage of their mental health journeys and that they are not alone in the process.

Make your mental health a priority. Meet our mental health partners.

Mental health is a part of overall health – mind, body and spirit.  We are encouraging all suburban Cook County residents to prioritize their own self-care and mental health. June is Men’s Health Month and PRIDE Month. Below is a list of trusted community partners offering mental health and wellness support:

Knowing the signs and symptoms that may indicate there is a mental health issue is key to knowing when to seek help for either yourself or someone close to you:

  • Eating or sleeping too much or too little
  • Pulling away from people and things
  • Having low or no energy
  • Feeling numb or like nothing matters
  • Having unexplained aches and pains
  • Feeling helpless or hopeless
  • Smoking, drinking, or using drugs more than you should
  • Feeling unusually confused or forgetful; on edge, angry, or upset; or worried and scared
  • Fighting with family and friends
  • Unable to get rid of troubling thoughts and memories
  • Thinking of hurting or killing yourself or someone else
  • Unable to perform daily tasks like taking care of your kids or getting to work or school.
