The Youth Mental Health System of Care identified the need for a more efficient referral tool to increase communication and collaboration amongst providers in our community.

A 5-minute video overview of IRIS can be found here and a recording of our demonstration with the Winnebago County Community Mental Health Board (WCCMHB) can be found below.

We are excited to build our IRIS network in Winnebago and Boone Counties. We hope your organization will join us to connect families to more services and resources available in our community.
