D209 visualizes future facilities During April 24 community meeting, architects presented nine possible concepts for the three campuses By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Proviso Township High Schools District 209 officials held the fourth, and by far the largest, master facilities plan community engagement session at Proviso Math and Science Academy, 8601 W. Roosevelt Rd. in Forest Park, on April 24. More than 400 people packed the school’s auditorium to hear architects from Perkins and Will, the architectural firm contracted last year to facilitate the master facilities planning process, present a series of longterm facilities concepts for the school. Last month’s meeting was the first where community members could actually see visual schemes of what future changes to the district’s three campuses might look like. The architects presented three concepts for each school. Two of the nine concepts — which were also the most unpopular among those in attendance at the meeting — called for Proviso East and Proviso West accommodating PMSA, which would be See D209 on page 7

Tamara Wallace, 27, soon-to-be e-mag publisher When Tamara Wallace, 27, of Bellwood, debuts Làdé Magazine, her new online publication, in June, she’ll be extending a brand of empowerment and aspiration that originated with her nonprofit of the same name. Wallace founded Làdé Incorporated in 2015 in order to help girls and women “recognize their worth and realize they can conquer anything,” according to the nonprofit’s website. Since the organization’s founding, members have hosted a range of empowering events on a routine basis, including self-defense classes, strategic planning sessions and bonfires. Làdé Magazine, Wallace said in a recent interview, will grow the organization’s empowering mission to scale, giving young women across the country, and possibly the world, a platform to share their life stories, aspirations, goals and achievements. “A lot of the articles will feature women who are doing big things in the community,” said Wallace. “I want to empower young women and what better way to do this than to build a platform that would enable me to do that?” While in college, Wallace studied TV and radio production, in addition to graphic design and other media disciplines. She had planned to go to work in the fields, but pregnancy intervened. While working at a bank for a year, she applied for jobs at newspapers and TV stations with no success before looking for opportunity inside of herself. “My uncle, who lives in Georgia, has several magazines in different countries,” Wallace said. “He told me to just start my own magazine.” Wallace said that the first issue will launch on June 30 and will

likely come out at the end of each quarter. She said her target audience is 18 to 35 year old women who, like her, are striving for a sense of purpose. Wallace said that by publishing her magazine digitally, meaning that it will only be available to read on the internet, she’ll be able to reach an audience with virtually unlimited growth potential without the burdensome costs of print. Besides, she added, millennial women are looking for information on web devices like phones, laptops and tablets — not so much in paper form. “The other good thing about digital magazines is that they’re interactive, so you can click on a link and it will go to business websites, YouTube videos, movies, you name it,” she said. “The format is really interactive.” Those interactive features will come in handy, since the magazine’s content will range from inspirational columns and interviews with successful business women to movie reviews. Wallace said she’s still looking for contributors, subscribers and advertisers. She said that people from other states have already pre-subscribed. Subscriptions are free. Wallace explained that her long-term business model is the reverse of Huffington Post, which until recently accepted unpaid articles from contributors. “We’ll allow people to submit articles free for now, but once we become big, we’ll start charging people to submit,” she said, adding that each e-magazine edition will be themed. The first edition’s theme, quite naturally, will be sisterhood. CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

Broadview approves new budget, outlines plans With budgets cut, department heads pledge to do more with less

By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

The village of Broadview’s Board of Trustees voted 5-1 to approve the budget for the 2019 fiscal year during a special April 18 meeting. Trustee Judy Brown-Marino was the sole dissenting vote. During the meeting, village officials also laid out their goals and plans for the new fiscal year. The budget was originally projected to have an almost $1.9 million deficit, but the department heads were able to bring the deficit down by reducing pension contributions from the level advised by the actuaries to the level mandated by state law, as well as reducing expenses. The village is expected to bring in $15,326,056 in total revenue — a $259,706, or 1.7 percent, increase compared to the 2018 fiscal year. Property tax revenue, which is expected to account for 39 percent of the budget, is expected to increase from $4,730,231 to $6,037,296. The next highest source of revenue, which is labeled ‘other taxes’ in the budget document, is projected to decrease by $281,067, going from $4,989,000 in fiscal year 2018 to $4,707,933 in fiscal year 2019. The village is also projected to take in less money from licenses, permits and fees, while getting more money from service charges and investment income. Timothy Hicks, Broadview’s finance director, said during the April 18 meeting that employee costs account for the largest share, or 66 percent, of the budget. The village plans to spend $9,785,117 overall – an increase compared to last year’s $9,411,473. “The majority of the costs are personnel costs, so that leaves very little,” Hicks said. “We have to fine-tune [the remainder in order] to be able to provide good services

OPIOID LAWSUIT Maywood joining? from page 1 Edelson representatives claim to have “prosecuted over 200 large-scale class and mass actions” totaling more than $1 billion. Some of the companies the firm has gone after include Chase, Uber and CitiBank. Murray said that last year, more than 100 cases were filed by state and local governments, many of them against opioid manufacturers such as Purdue Pharma L.P., Teva Pharmaceuticals, McKesson and Endo Health Solutions. The lawsuits accuse the companies of fraud, unjust enrichment, negligence and public nuisance. They even claim that the companies have been violating the Racketeer

that residents have come to know and to expand certain services.” The employee benefits costs went up as well. The amount of money that will go into contract services is lower than it was this fiscal year, going down from $2,484,508 to $2,462,482. The village also plans to spend less on goods and capital expenses, which dropped by 23 percent and 35 percent, respectively. The executive department, which includes Broadview Mayor Katrina Thompson and the trustees, got an 8 percent bump under the 2019 budget, going up from $682,724 to $737,481. Thompson said that one of the reasons for the change is that all of the village legal services have been consolidated in the executive department, so legal service expenses went up in that department and dropped down to zero in all others. The village clerk’s office budget was reduced by 26 percent, going down from $69,353 to $51,105. Village Clerk Kevin McGrier said that he plans to operate on an even lower budget than that. He also noted that his office’s budget tends to go up during election years and go down during off years. McGrier said that his office’s major priority in the upcoming fiscal year would be to ensure that all of the ordinances are properly codified and up-to-date. McGrier explained that this is something that has been a major issue since 2015. And, in what he described as an unprecedented move for Broadview, McGrier said he would release 2017 executive session minutes. The Buildings Department budget was reduced by $32,166, going down from $584,318 to $552,152. David Upshaw, the Broadview Building Commissioner, explained that, at the mayor’s request, he intends to hire a

second administrative staffer to help with economic development initiatives. Upshaw said that he also plans to hire contractors to handle landscaping for “all municipal properties as well as abandoned homes that we become aware of during the [next] fiscal year.” Upshaw said that his major priorities are to update the Broadview building code and put together a comprehensive program that would create uniform procedures for what kinds of incentives developers and property owners can apply for. He said that he also plans to sell villageowned properties in order to encourage economic development and buy up abandoned properties with large property tax debts in order to get rid of the debt and sell it back to private owners. “Our budget is less,” Upshaw reflected. “And it [is] my goal to increase revenue in our community and lose our debt, and we can do it by economic development, which will create sales tax, property tax [revenue].” Other departments saw their budgets reduced. The finance department’s budget dropped by around 5 percent and the public works department’s budget dropped by roughly 7 percent. “We operated within our budget every year, with exception of 2010, where we had a natural disaster [flood],” said Matthew Ames, the public works director. “We’re going to do everything in our power to operate within our ever-reducing budget. But I do understand.” Ames said that he would like to replace a street sweeper and other vehicles, since most of them have become unreliable and expensive to maintain. The village also plans to install smart water meters, replace the water main on Roosevelt Road and repaint the village water

tower — something that hasn’t been done in about 20 years. Ames suggested that it would be prudent for Broadview to apply for lowinterest Illinois Environmental Protection Agency loans to help cover these and other projects. Broadview’s fire and police department’s experienced budget increases of 2 percent and 6 percent, respectively. Broadview Mayor Katrina Thompson said during the meeting that she plans to work more closely with other departments to encourage economic development, collaborate more intensively with area schools and other government entities and setup a municipal internship program for Broadview college students. Some trustees, such as Judy BrownMarino, expressed concerns about the budget. Brown-Marino said that she was concerned that some of the projected revenue was too optimistic. “I’m concerned that we got really rosy, overly optimistic and unrealistic projections,” she said. “I’m seeing one thing after another after another that mirrors everything [former mayor] Henry Vicenic was doing that led to massive layoffs and the austerity program, and having not enough money to cover payroll at the time,” she said. Trustees Sherman Jones and John Ealey expressed their own reservations, with the latter suggesting that it might be prudent to hold off on the vote. But trustee Verina Horne said that, overall, she had no problem with the budget. “I actually think this budget solid,” she said. “I can understand how people can have different ideas of how they want to use the money, but the information that was presented adds up, it’s balanced, it makes sense.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or better known as the RICO Act — a law that’s often used to go after leaders of criminal syndicates. In a Dec. 6, 2017 panel discussion at the City Club of Chicago, Jay Edelson, the president of Edelson PC, compared the lawsuits currently being filed against opioid manufacturers with the big tobacco lawsuits filed in the 1990s. “What we think we’re going to be able to demonstrate is they decided to try to change the narrative,” Edelson said of some pharmaceutical companies in December, according to a Cook County Record report. “They set up shell corporations and fake research and started convincing doctors and the public that they had this new pill, OxyContin,” Edelson said, adding that the manufacturers tried persuading the public that the drug was not addictive. At the May 1 meeting in Maywood,

Murray said that those manufacturers have contributed to an opioid epidemic that has had myriad “economic impacts that are hard to quantify,” including lost productivity in the form of employee absenteeism, and increased costs for health insurance, criminal justice and substance abuse treatment programs, among other costs. Despite the unquantifiable nature of the “pain caused to individuals and families affected by the epidemic,” Edelson representatives pointed out, “communities across the United States have shouldered real costs in trying to combat it.” Edelson officials said that the “annual estimated burden of opioid abuse in the United States totals over $78.4 billion.” The combined annual revenue of the pharmaceutical companies that are targets of the lawsuits is upwards of $600 billion, they said. “History suggests that municipalities

like Maywood need to get involved in order to secure their portion of any settlement,” Murray said, adding that he doesn’t believe that “many, if any” of the cases currently working their way through the courts will go to trial. “Recovery is going to come via settlement and only by filing a lawsuit will a village like Maywood be able to carve out their stake as a portion of that overall settlement,” Murray said. Murray added that he does not know precisely how much a settlement would be worth, but said that if the multi-billiondollar tobacco settlement is a guide, the total could reach into the “trillions of dollars.” He said that the money doled out from the big tobacco settlement, which was filed by states, did not end up trickling down to the affected communities — a result that can be avoided by individual municipalities joining the lawsuits themselves.

A conversation with Lonnie Bunch The founding director of the National Museum of African American History and Culture talks past, present, future By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Lonnie Bunch, the founding director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C., was in River Forest last week to speak at Dominican University’s commencement. During a roughly 30-minute conversation, he also waded into contemporary waters, addressing everything from #MeToo and Bill Cosby’s place in the museum to President Trump and Kanye West’s controversial “slavery was a choice” statement. The following responses have been edited for brevity and clarity.

On the origins of the museum The National Museum of African American History and Culture was basically a startup. I started with a staff of two — me and one other person — in 2005. While it was clearly a small group, one of the great strengths of my career has been that I know scholars and museum people everywhere, so I was able to draw on that to help people figure out what this museum should be. My most important job was to convince people that this would happen, because the idea for this museum had been floating around since 1913, but nobody was really ready for it. In some ways, it was like a political campaign. I had to figure out the vision, how to build support and relationships.

That was an amazing day. To have the Chief Justice of the United States there and my person hero, Congressman John Lewis, was unbelievably humbling. You’re sitting up there, looking out at this sea of people, thousands of them, and every celebrity wanted to be there — Oprah, Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Powell. You find yourself thinking, ‘Oh, my God, what am I doing? How did I do this?’ And you realize all of these people are there because the staff worked so hard to open that museum.

On the Chicago area’s representation in the museum Chicago’s history is a history that has shaped the nation’s political, racial and economic history, so it was clear that Chicago would have a presence in the new museum. We have a pew from Quinn Chapel [the oldest black church, and longest-held property by African Americans, in Chicago] that gives people a sense of the religious history of Chicago. We’ve also collected issues of the Chicago Defender to give people a sense of how that newspaper changed the tint and tone of everything in the North.

On the bipartisan coalition that built the museum On the Hill, I was able to get support from people like Rep. Danny K. Davis and Bobby Rush and some new kid named Obama. It helped to have that, but even more importantly, there were North Side Republicans like John Porter who helped me cross the political divide. George W. Bush was also important to this. He had not only signed the law authorizing the museum in 2003, but there were people who said, ‘Don’t build it on the mall.’ But Bush said, no, this museum needs to be on the mall. And because he was a Republican, he could convince people. Laura Bush even agreed to serve on my board.

On opening the museum We broke ground in 2012 and it took four years to build. We opened in September 2016. Obama had asked me to make sure that he got to open the museum, so that was one of my commitments to the president. I remember going into construction meetings and saying, ‘I was hanging out with the president and he’d like to have you guys move a little quicker,’ so that kind of helped.

There’s also Emmett Till’s Casket. There are a lot of things.

On whether or not President Trump has had an effect on the museum’s operations The Trump administration doesn’t have any operational effect on the museum. Our budgets have been strong. President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have visited the museum. As people begin to look at civil rights and race in America, the museum has become a pilgrimage site.

On the impact of #MeToo on the museum’s curation We have material in the museum from the Black Lives Matter movement and #MeToo, and have done programs around

Submitted

BUILT FROM SCRATCH: Lonnie Bunch started work on building the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History back in 2005, when it was only him and one other staff person. many of these issues, including a program on Confederate monuments. The museum recognizes that it has to be as much about today and tomorrow as it is about yesterday, so I also want to wrestle with these questions. There are some things we do now and some things we’ll wait and grapple with down the road, but we want to make sure that we collect material, oral histories and ideas Wikimedia around these stories. Our job is to collect today for tomorrow, as well as collect yesterday for today.

On Bill Cosby’s current place in the museum There was an article in the New York Times that quotes some of the women who accused Cosby. They said that we should have him in the museum and response is pretty simple. I’m a historian of Black America. So much of Black America has been erased. I don’t erase history. So, Cosby is in the museum, but we also made it clear that, at this point, his reputation and legacy has been damaged. We’ll also change a label to say that he’s been convicted. But I will never erase history — that has really hurt the black community. Anybody who expects us to erase history is

just downright wrong.

On Kanye West’s statement that ‘400 years of slavery was a choice’ The most important thing a museum does is educate. What you hope is that people get an understanding of this history and slavery is part of it — without a doubt. When we did our initial surveys in the beginning, slavery was the number one thing people wanted to know about and the number one thing people didn’t want to know about. We hope that everyone who comes into the museum understands that slavery isn’t just a black story — it’s a story that shaped the country. It’s a story about pain and brutally, but also about strength and resilience.

On the national museum’s commitment to museums like Maywood’s West Town Museum of Cultural History We knew we couldn’t build this museum without standing on the shoulders of many other black museums, so part of this was a chance to be the kind of national museum with resources that may not have always been available to other institutions. Small institutions, like the one in Maywood, would reap the benefit of being involved with something called the Association of African American Museums, which includes large and small museums. They help get them support and money. We always encourage institutions to reach out to that group. CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

Members of the Proviso East High School Marching Band swayed, stomped and shouted in the auditorium at FieldStevenson Elementary School on May 7, offering young Forest Parkers a look at what their future could hold if they join the growing high school group. “We actually have a very small number of students from Forest Park, which is a reason we really want to increase our influence,” said Cletis Seals, band director. “Most students who come from Forest Park will either [attend Proviso Math and Science Academy] or they’ll transfer to another school outside the district,” he said. “So we figure if we show them all the great things we offer at Proviso East, it’ll help them stay ALEXA ROGALS

within the district.” Dressed in blue shirts that read “Straight Outta Proviso East” and “Proviso East Forever,” the 53 students performed five songs for the packed auditorium. Three color-guard dancers accompanied the show, shaking in white leotards, gold tights and waving their blue flags. Principal Tiffany Brunson asked performers how many were former Field-Stevenson Sharks. Three band students pumped their fists. “We have a lot of children, of course, at Field-Stevenson and D91 who attend Proviso East and PMSA,” Brunson said. “This gives our kids something to look forward to and enhances the partnership with the schools.” Field-Stevenson students can join band once they enter fourth grade, and there are 22 students in the current program, said band director Bob Kelly, adding that participation has grown every year. “It’s good for us to see what the future can hold,” he said of the high school’s performance. Though participation has grown in the Field-Stevenson band, the number of students involved in the Proviso East program has decreased from 65 students at the end of the 2015 school year to the current

53, Seals said, with only four performers from Forest Park. “One reason is the change in leadership,” Seals said. “Whenever you change leadership in a band program a lot of students will prefer the styles of the previous leader, and a lot of the middle-schoolers come in with the preconceived notion you have to come in already knowing how to play an instrument.” Seals took over the program in 2015, after longtime band director Reginald Wright retired. Wright served the Proviso district for 20 years, and even served as Seals’ mentor and coach. During his time at PMSA, Seals participated in the Proviso East Marching Band, and eventually earned a scholarship to South Carolina State University for his trumpet skills. After studying music, he said Wright encouraged him to apply for his soon-to-be vacant position in 2015. “I want to make sure that I give back to my community; this is where I got my roots,” said Seals, of Broadview. “I want to make sure anyone coming after has the same opportunities, if not more, than I had.” Seals expects marching band students to treat participation in the program like a job, and he makes all his seniors audition

New grocery store lands on Roosevelt Road Living Fresh Market, replacing Ultra Foods, opens on May 16

By NONA TEPPER Forest Park Review

After months of preparation, Living Fresh Market in Forest Park has scheduled its grand, ribbon-cutting opening for May 16, with a soft opening planned for May 8. Co-owner Dan Casaccio said staff has been working until midnight every night to get the new store in order, putting up shelves, stocking items, painting the ceiling and more. He said the soft opening is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on May 8, and will be open every day during those hours until May 16, when Living Fresh will celebrate its grand opening at 10 a.m. Fourteen vendors will serve up products for customers to try during the grand opening, Casaccio said, adding that he is still planning for the big event. The soft opening is intended to help employees work out the kinks of running a new store and practice interacting with customers. “There is a lot of hard work in this, trying to make this look warm and not like a warehouse,” he said. In constructing the new store at 7520 W. Roosevelt Rd., Casaccio said he spent about three months researching what brands to carry and how many items could fit on the shelves. He said he stocks items from more than 400 vendors — including many Chicago area brands like Home Run Inn, Iltaco Foods and Parker House Sausage Company — as well as those from across the world, from Chile to China, Italy to India. He said Living Fresh also offers items that are organic and gluten-

free. “What makes us different from Ultra and other stores is that we have every nationality represented,” he said. For the past four months, he and staff have been setting up the store. He said about 90 percent of his 100-person staff is from the area, with a few hired from the old Ultra Foods Living Fresh replaced. Ultra Foods closed in June 2017 after parent company Strack & Van Til went bankrupt. The mall is owned by Forest Park Plaza LLC, a for-profit entity of Living Word Christian Center. Living Fresh has entered a lease with Forest Park Plaza LLC that stretches about 40 years. After buying the 70,211 square-foot place, Living Fresh started construction in January and Casaccio set to painting the store. He shot more than 1,600 gallons of charcoal paint at the ceiling to replace the old white color. Casaccio also took out three shelves from Ultra, ensuring aisles are wide enough for more than two carts to pass through, and so that Living Fresh would have room for a coffee bar, prepared food section, sandwichmaking and grilling station, juice bar and soup and salad space. “If you like the fish, we’ll cook it,” he said, adding that customers can buy fresh fish from the market and that Living Fresh employees will grill it on the spot. After the grand opening, Living Fresh will offer every customer a free cup of coffee for two weeks. Casaccio’s also brought in an outside pastry specialist to make sure the store is stocked with cakes for Mother’s Day

The store will only serve beer and wine — no hard alcohol — and plans to set up wine tastings once it opens. After the store operations settle in, Casaccio said Living Fresh will also offer home delivery. Living Fresh is owned by brothers Dan and Ken Casaccio, third-generation grocers who also own Leamington Foods, a chain of three grocery stores in Hillside and on Chicago’s West Side. Living Fresh is managed by GCC LLC, an entity separate from Leamington, which is managed under Leamington Foods Inc.

In March, the Forest Park Village Council voted unanimously to give GCC LLC up to $450,000 to facilitate the leasing, remodeling and operation of Living Fresh in the Forest Park shopping center. The money will come from the Roosevelt Corridor Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district, which stretches from Harlem Avenue to Desplaines Avenue. “I have a vision of what the future of grocery stores will be,” Casaccio said. “More cooking, more prepared meals, salad bars, everything.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

D209 FACILITIES Overhaul from page 1 relocated from its current campus in Forest Park to either of the two other schools. “Tonight we’re in concept testing,” said Mark Jolicoeur, a Perkins and Will architect. “For each of the three schools we have different concepts. They are nothing more than that. They are ideas to test how the sites can work.” All of the concepts addressed the high square footage per student at all three of the campuses, each of which has a classroom utilization rate of less than 70 percent — well below the recommended rate of around 85 percent — and hosts far fewer students than they have the capacity to host. Two of the three concepts for East would entail moving the faculty, staff and student parking lots that are currently west of 1st Avenue onto the school’s main campus; adding a new student commons area in the center of the main academic building; either building a new fieldhouse or extensively renovating the current one; consolidating and reconstructing PE athletics facilities in the fieldhouse; and upgrading the football stadium (including improving the track and field space); among other improvements. Two of the three concepts for West would entail the addition of a student commons area, consolidated and expanded career technical education space and renovated cafeteria space, among other improvements common to the three plans. All three concepts would also include an expanded south parking area for students and guests, which would improve car and bus traffic on campus. The third concept for West would locate PMSA in a wing near the bus drop-off and pickup lane, with a new academic wing for West students situated closer toward the center of the campus. The third concept for East would entail building a space for PMSA’s campus at the corner of 1st Avenue and Madison St. while building an academic addition for East. Similarly, the third concept for West entails relocating PMSA’s campus into a separate wing of the campus. All three concepts for PMSA would entail relocating the parking lot entry further north and providing additional drop-off and pick-up access. A new lane dedicated to student drop-off and pickup would be designed to lower congestion and create safer site circulation, architects said. In addition, all of the PMSA concepts would include a new student commons area featuring a secured entry that would allow for after-hours use, and the addition of a new play field with a walking track. The first PMSA concept entails the addition of a new gymnasium and locker rooms while the second concept only features new performing arts and woodshop space. The third concept for the school features both new gymnasium and locker space, as well as new performing arts space (additional

space for music instruction would replace the woodshop space). District 209 Supt. Jesse Rodriguez started the meeting off by addressing the public reaction that accompanied the third community engagement session, where Perkins and Will publicly broached the possibility of closing PMSA’s Forest Park campus and presented a series of options — all but one of which called for relocating the magnet school to Proviso East in Maywood and/or Proviso West in Hillside. At the time, Perkins and Will representatives stressed that the options were merely preliminary and were generated based, in large part, on public input gathered during previous sessions. The architects also acknowledged the difficulty of even posing the possibility of consolidating the campuses, which touched off a storm of reaction, particularly among PMSA students and parents — some of whom mistakenly conflated the architectural concepts for imminent board decisions, among other misunderstandings about the facilities process. The architects’ preliminary scenarios also sparked a debate among many community members that has been constant since PMSA opened roughly a decade ago inside of a converted office building once owned by Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood. Many PMSA parents and students have argued that the magnet school’s location in a separate building from East and West — both of which lag in academic performance and experience more discipline issues — is a large part of PMSA’s appeal, allowing students who may not feel comfortable at the other two schools a space to thrive. Critics of the selective enrollment school, however, have claimed that it has been a source of stigma for students at East and West, many of whom may feel alienated from PMSA’s many successes, which include being ranked among the top suburban Perkins and Will high schools in the Chicago area. During last month’s community JUST A THOUGHT: Architects with Perkins and Will presented a series of test concepts, including ones engagement session, supporters of that showed PMSA merged with the campuses of East (above) and West during a public meeting PMSA as a campus separate from last month.

Support4U is a mental health-related prevention and support resource for students, by which they can text licensed mental health clinicians any time of the day for assistance or guidance. While students can initiate a text conversation on any issue, some of the matters that students might wish to address could include anxiety, depression, substance use, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, bullying, abuse, or any other mental health-related topic. The resource is anonymous, so students’ concerns about their identity are not a barrier to reaching out. The clinician’s goal during the text conversation is to assess the situation, provide skills counseling when appropriate and steer the student to available resources in the school and community.

Community Funded By The Following Organizations

Support4U Initiative was identified through the work of the Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention Task Force. MHASP is a community-based task force made up of the Community Mental Health Boards of Oak Park and River Forest, NAMI, Riveredge Hospital, Thrive, Local School Representation; D200, D90, Oak Park Police, Village of Oak Park, Congregation of Churches, and community behavioral health professionals
