The Living Room

A Free, Inviting Space For Support

An accessible alternative to visiting a hospital or emergency room

The Living Room is open to all and welcomes anyone who is experiencing an emotional or mental health crisis to receive compassionate support in a safe, welcoming space.

You will be able to connect with one of our Peer Support Specialists who have experienced their own mental health journey.

Talk to someone who’s been there. Talk to a peer.

Drop in. Our door is open.


  • Monday – Sunday, 7am – 12 am
  • If you need support after hours, call (847) 441-5600 and select option 8.​

A safe and calming space
