ELGIN, Ill.  The Hanover Township Mental Health Board today introduced a breakthrough Web solution for individuals, families and agencies concerned with mental and emotional wellness.

The Hanover Township Network of Care for Behavioral Health (http://hanover.il.networkofcare.org) is an online information place that provides critical information, communication and advocacy tools with a single point of entry. It ensures there is “No Wrong Door” for those navigating the system of behavioral health services, those working to avoid the need for formal services, and those ready to transition out of the behavioral health system.

To empower mental health clients and providers, the Network of Care for Behavioral Health helps people find the right service at the right time, educate themselves about their issues, find assistive devices, understand current policy initiatives and advocate directly to elected officials, and help them manage their affairs, interactions, and important records.

The Network of Care for Behavioral Health provides a comprehensive Service Directory of the approximately service 210 providers in Hanover Township, putting people in touch with the right services at the right time.
