The InTouch Hotline is a free telephone crisis intervention, counseling, and referral service offered to UIC students and members of the greater Chicagoland area. The Hotline is staffed by volunteers trained through the UIC Paraprofessional Program. Calls placed to the Hotline remain confidential and are treated in an objective, non-judgmental fashion. Hotline volunteers are trained to discuss a wide range of problems.
Individuals are encouraged to call and explore any important issue or concern they may be facing if they believe that the concern requires immediate attention, but they do not feel that they need to be seen in person or require immediate emergency hospital care.
