What is the ECR?

The East Central Region (ECR) is a partnership between 9 counties to provide comprehensive brain health and disability services to individuals in eastern Iowa. Iowans have a regional base of services which meet statewide standards to address their needs. Counties pool their resources and offer an array of services to improve the health of Iowans.

Your Life Iowa

The East Central Region uses Your Life Iowa as the statewide crisis line, making free crisis calls and text available to anyone in Iowa. 

Your Life Iowa provides free information and referral, counseling, crisis service coordination, and linkages to crisis screening and mental health services 24 hours a day.
