The Living Room: Forever Hope

Thresholds is now offering crisis support in a program called The Living Room – Forever Hope on the north side of Chicago, Illinois. This new program is an entirely peer-led crisis respite center, an alternative to psychiatric hospitalization. The Living Room at Thresholds is a comfortable, safe, and quiet place for those experiencing a mental health crisis. This program is run for those in recovery, by those in recovery.

The Living Room bannerStaff at the Living Room help guests through a screening and assessment process in a natural, comfortable setting. They are ready with a number of trauma-informed supports and interventions to help meet the needs of each individual. This model has been successful in preventing unnecessary psychiatric hospitalizations that can be distressing and exacerbate mental health symptoms.

In contrast, Thresholds’ Living Room is a calm, peaceful and inviting space with plenty of natural light. Our Living Room is housed in a building that also features many other on-site services that may be utilized by Thresholds clients, including a primary care clinic and pharmacy.
