screening assessment & support services (SASS)
Do you know a youth (0 to 21 years old) who wants to harm themselves or someone else?
Please call the CARES Line 1-800-345-9049 to get linked to crisis services through SASS. Heritage’s SASS Services are provided to children and adolescents who are 0 to 18 years of age that either have no form of insurance or have an active public aid card or All Kids insurance. SASS services are also provided for adults 18 -21 years old who have an active public aid card and at risk for psychiatric hospitalizations and are located, at the time of crisis, in Macon, Piatt or Dewitt counties.
Heritage’s SASS services screen and assess children to determine the need for psychiatric hospitalization and to deflect when appropriate, to provide ongoing monitoring of youth admitted to a state funded facility to ensure timely discharge planning, linkage and after care.
