  • Trinity Services achieves highest level of accreditation from The Council on Quality and Leadership

    Feb 16, 2017

    NEW LENOX, IL — Trinity Services, Inc. is pleased to announce that, in February, it achieved the highest possible level of accreditation from the Council on Quality and Leadership, continuing a tradition Trinity started in 1992.

    The four-year Person-Centered Excellence Accreditation, With Distinction, confirms that Trinity Services uses person-centered solutions in its work to help people with disabilities and mental illness flourish and live full and abundant lives.

    Trinity Services is one of only a handful of organizations in the United States to have achieved this prestigious level of accreditation.

    CQL observed the scope of services and supports offered by Trinity Services; interviewed persons served, family members, staff members and community stakeholders; and evaluated how well Trinity met and implemented CQL’s Shared Values (which aim to ensure accountabilities related to interpersonal interactions), Basic Assurances (which list fundamental requirements for service providers) and Personal Outcome Measures (21 indicators used to determine what is important to each person receiving services).

    Trinity Services’ “Everything Counts” philosophy means that every action, thought and experience is significant. Every staff interaction with a person served creates a ripple effect that promotes self-confidence, heightens self-esteem and leads to the achievement of personal goals. 

    “Trinity staff members go above and beyond in their efforts to serve others,” said Raymond McShane, chairperson of Trinity’s Board of Directors. “I am proud of them for maintaining this tradition of excellence.”

    Trinity Services’ quality assurance efforts, whether they are the bedrock issues of health and safety, or matters of quality improvement, are fundamental elements of the services Trinity provides.

    Trinity initially chose to pursue the rigorous CQL Accreditation in 1992 because the process validates the quality of person-directed services and supports better than any other accrediting organization in the field.

    The accreditation process resulted in a shared plan of action that Trinity will carry out over the course of the four-year accreditation period. At several points, various reports and data will be shared with CQL to measure progress.

    The Council on Quality and Leadership is an international nonprofit, virtual organization dedicated to the definition, measurement and improvement of personal quality of life. CQL’s vision is a world of dignity, opportunity and community for all people. To learn more about CQL, visit www.c-q-l.org.

    Trinity Services, Inc. is a 67-year-old, nonsectarian, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness flourish and live full and abundant lives. Trinity serves more than 3,500 people in 31 communities in Will, Cook, DuPage, Grundy, Peoria, Madison, Jackson and St. Clair counties, and Reno, Nevada.

  • Trinity Services partners with Orland Park Police Department to provide mental health services to referred civilians

    Feb 13, 2017

    NEW LENOX, IL — To assist police when they encounter someone in need of mental health services, Trinity Services, Inc.’s Family Counseling Center has entered into a partnership with the Orland Park Police Department to provide counseling on an as-needed basis.

    The partnership began at the beginning of the year and is part of the OPPD’s involvement in the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s One Mind Campaign that seeks to improve relationships between police officers and people affected by mental illness.

    The partnership between police and mental health counselors is important because one in five people will experience a mental illness in their lifetimes, and police departments are receiving increasingly more calls related to persons exhibiting symptoms of mental illness, according to Bonnie Hassan, director of Trinity’s Family Counseling Center.

    After police respond to a mental health-related call — with at least one officer trained to respond to mental health issues on each shift — officers complete a referral and submit it to the Family Counseling Center. A counselor will then contact the person within 24 hours and schedule a session within 48 hours.

    Counselors call those who are referred a minimum of three times, and if a person declines services or does not respond, the Family Counseling Center sends the person a letter detailing the services that are available — up to six free therapy sessions a year, as part of the partnership.

    Since the launch of the partnership in January, the Family Counseling Center has received 24 referrals from the OPPD.

    “Our goal is to make sure that people have the mental health treatment they need and decrease the need for police intervention because they have access to more appropriate resources,” Hassan said.

    Family Counseling Center staff members are available to OPPD officers 24 hours per day through an on-call system. Family Counseling Center staff members also provide on-site consultation when requested by an OPPD officer.

    In addition to providing mental health services through the partnership, in January, Trinity Services trained approximately 80 OPPD officers on autism.

    Trinity’s Family Counseling Center offers evidenced-based psychological services for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in individual and group formats in English and Spanish. It has four Chicagoland locations. Its mission is to strengthen family life, foster healthy personal development, and enable people to live responsibly, compassionately and safely. Family Counseling Center staff members include licensed counselors, psychologists and social workers. The Family Counseling Center also serves as a training facility, offering twelve-month internship and practicum experiences to students.

    Trinity Services, Inc. is a 67-year-old, nonsectarian, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness flourish and live full and abundant lives. Trinity serves more than 3,500 people in 31 communities in Will, Cook, DuPage, Grundy, Peoria, Madison, Jackson and St. Clair counties, and Reno, Nevada.
