Newsworthy: New Local Resource: Text-A-Tip
Thanks to the Community Wellness Task Force of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff, local residents now have a way to anonymously text with a mental health professional any time of day or night if they have concerns about themselves or someone else. By simply texting 847HELP to 274637, the person will be connected to a local clinician via text, but will be able to retain his or her anonymity because the text messages are sent through a third-party cloaking server. This unique resource aims to help both young people and adults get the support they need in an easily accessible and non-threatening way, with an end goal of a safer and healthier community.
