Donor Spotlight: Community Mental Health Board of Oak Park Township

Thresholds is pleased to feature the Community Mental Health Board of Oak Park Township (CMHB) in this month’s Donor Spotlight. Started by the Oak Park Township following a referendum in 1973, the CMHB is comprised of nine Oak Park residents, committed to facilitating a wide range of mental health services for residents of Oak Park, including planning, coordinating, funding, and evaluating services.

For over 10 years, the CMHB has been an extraordinary partner to Thresholds in assisting persons living with chronic mental illnesses in achieving and maintaining recovery. The CMHB fills a critical need by providing funding for uninsured individuals with serious mental illnesses living in Oak Park. With this funding, Thresholds is able to provide these individuals with community support, clinical interventions, and case management services that they would otherwise not have access to.

Additionally, the CMHB has provided funding for infrastructure improvements for Thresholds’ residential building for Oak Park clients with mental illnesses. This has made it possible for Thresholds to purchase items such as computers, clothing, and furnishings to further enhance the lives of these clients.
