McLean County CHS stops accepting psychiatric clients

The McLean County’s Center for Human Services announced Monday they will no longer be accepting new patients.

The decision comes after funding cuts from both the state and the United Way.

The center’s Executive Director Tom Barr said they serve those with the greatest needs and fewest resources and that they made this choice with a heavy heart.

“Some individuals may be be able to seek care through their primary care physicians. But unfortunately a large number of people I’m afraid will not be able to access the care they need. That will have a potentially negative impact both on them and the community at large,” he said.

Barr said the center’s other programs will not be impacted, but they will be working to find funding from other sources.
