Location: Carol Stream
Posted on: February 12, 2024
In preparation for the opening of the Crisis Recovery Center,
DuPage County Health Department Crisis Services is expanding the
team to include the role of Safety Specialist. The Safety
Specialist role will be one of the first points of contact for
individuals coming into the current facility seeking crisis
services and support. Staff in these roles will have primary
responsibility for greeting and assisting clients upon entry into
the building, overseeing the reception areas, and supporting a safe
environment for all in the building.
The Crisis Recovery Center (CRC) is the critical next step in
DuPage County Health Department's decades-long journey to build the
infrastructure needed to support a best-in-class behavioral health
system and ensures all DuPage County residents will have "someone
to call, someone to respond, and somewhere to go" when experiencing
a mental health or substance use crisis. The CRC will help
residents de-escalate, stabilize, and connect to community
resources catered to their individual mental health and substance
use treatment needs. The building design and operations will ensure
individuals and their families feel welcome, respected, and secure
throughout every step of their care. The CRC serves as an
alternative to hospital emergency departments and simplifies access
to crisis care for all individuals, families, and first responders.
