Responsibilities and Functions  

While the McLean County Health Department does not administer any behavioral health services, the health department coordinates with the Illinois Department of Human Services to plan and fund the local system of care. Behavioral health, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse services are provided through contracts with local behavioral health and human service agencies. 

Services supported include:
  • Adolescent substance abuse prevention and early intervention
  • Crisis intervention
  • Outpatient services
  • Support, training, and intervention for developmentally disabled children and adults
The McLean County Health Department reviews grant applications annually and awards funding based upon community needs and priorities.
