Adults (18+) experiencing anxiety, depression, thoughts of suicide, or other life challenges are encouraged to call or visit for assistance from a peer specialist.

What is the Living Room?

The Living Room provides adults (18+) with immediate peer support for stress, crisis, and mental health concerns.

This program offers a free, safe, and confidential connection for help with immediate mental health struggles. Peer Specialists create a calm and relaxing environment to help individuals deescalate when experiencing a mental health crisis or high-stress situation. Clients develop a safety plan and an opportunity to learn coping skills. The goal is to create an alternative option besides the emergency room for crisis mental-health support. All services are free of charge, and no appointment is necessary.  Call 618-397-0968 ext.109; Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 5:00 pm.
