The Winnebago County Illinois Sheriff’s Office is expanding its community crisis co-responder team (CCRT) through a collaboration with Rosecrance, Inc., a non-profit behavioral health services provider organization. The expansion is made possible with a grant of $2 million from the Winnebago County Community Mental Health Board.
The CCRT program includes mental health professional on calls responding to behavioral health crisis due to mental health or addiction disorder. The CCRT provides follow-up services to link individuals to needed services. The CCRT was formed in late November 2020 as a joint venture between the city of Rockford, Winnebago . . .
