Community Crisis Services, Inc

The non-profit Community Crisis Services, Inc. has become a one-stop calling center for information & compassionate assistance for those in crisis. Calling the Hotline is often the first step an individual makes to access the mental health services & social service organizations within the community. We are here 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for anyone facing crisis & personal turmoil.

Our vision is to provide compassionate crisis support through our hotline, safe shelter programs and information & referral services.

Man Therapy

Difficult Problems Require Bold Solutions

Suicide is a complex issue with many unique, contributing variables. While there is no magic solution when it comes to suicide prevention, we believe the best defense is a good offense. After years of research, Man Therapy® was created as an upstream approach to preventing suicide for the highest-risk men, who often don't receive support. The innovative campaign and 24/7 digital platform gets working-aged men to think differently about their mental health and take action before they ever reach a point of crisis. Man Therapy® has spent over ten years breaking down barriers to help-seeking behavior and smashing the notion that men can't talk about their feelings.


“They attach to surfaces using a high-quality adhesive. You can stick them on your phone, your laptop, desk, pretty much anywhere you need them. The adhesive leaves little to no residue if you choose to move them. You can use them again and again!”


Our Vision 

We envision a world where all members of the military, veteran and first responder communities have the training, skills and support they need to transform their mental health struggles into lifelong Posttraumatic Growth.

We do this by scaling innovative training programs based on the science of PTG. These research-backed programs — offered at no cost to participants — train members of the military, veterans, and first responders to experience growth and thrive in the aftermath of traumatic events.

Robert L. Hopper

safeTALK Trainer at VOA Illinois

In 2016, I had the privilege of being trained to become a certified safeTALK trainer for my work with the National Veterans Resource Squad (NVRS) by Ames. The training was intense, not only because of the content and topic . . . 

J. Strom Butler

Empowerment Coach

The thing that stands out to me the most is that I feel safe sharing my obstacles with Ames as most of them are internal obstacles. She is very approachable and easy to communicate with . . .
