The Behavioral Health Collaborative (BHC) is a cross-sector partnership of DuPage County leaders that works collaboratively to identify and implement data-driven strategies that improve access and quality of behavioral health services for all DuPage County residents, advocate for aligning resources and funding, and educate the community about the signs and symptoms of mental illness.
The Trauma and Disaster Team is comprised of behavioral health clinicians who provide counseling and debriefing services to individuals in the community who have experienced a traumatic event. A traumatic event could include an unexpected or sudden death, a traumatic injury, witnessing or being a victim of a violent crime, or surviving a natural disaster, to name a few. Trauma responses are ideally provided 48 to 72 hours after the traumatic event.
