At The Center of Mental Health and Hope

Community Mental Health at its Finest
By Susan Resko
President

We understand that our clients need us now more than ever in this time of uncertainty and anxiety.   The Josselyn Center will continue our services at this time.  Please call your clinician in advance of your scheduled appointment to arrange a communication method that is safe and healthy for both you and your clinician.  We can provide services via Zoom, a HIPAA-secured video conferencing platform, or via phone. 

I am so impressed with, and in awe of our amazing Josselyn staff who are dedicated to supporting our clients during this trying time.  This is community mental health at its finest, and I’m proud and honored to work alongside these dedicated heroes who are selflessly serving our clients.

Nonetheless, this pandemic is taking a deep toll on our financial ability to continue to serve our clients. Please make a donation so that we have the resources to continue during this pandemic. Consider making a donation in honor of your clinician or a staff member who is serving those in need.

If you have a specific medical question, please consult with your primary care physician or pediatrician.  Please check our website, social media or call in advance of your appointment for the very latest information.

During this time of social distancing, we will not be accepting walk ins. Please call 847-441-5600 x1 during business hours and you will be connected to a clinical team member who can speak to you over the phone or via Zoom. 

Our Living Room is now open via phone and Zoom. If you are in need to talk with one of our Peer Specialists, please dial 847-496-3170. A Peer Specialist will answer your call during the hours of Monday-Friday 9am - 5pm and Saturday 9am - 2pm.

Thank you and be well.

Getting started is easy.

Getting started is easy.

We reach out to offer hope and healing at every step of the mental health journey. We are there before the point of crisis, during the darkest moments, and for the loved ones who walk with our clients.

Thanks to our generous donors and partners, we provide compassionate, quality, affordable care using a sliding-fee scale.

We are your community mental health center.

What can we do together today?

Se habla espanol.

Mental Health For Clients

We have guided tens of thousands of individuals through their mental health journey. From home visits by case managers to our Drop-In-Center in Northfield, we are here for you. Learn about our wide array of services.

Hope For Families

Mental illness affects the whole family. It can push every limit, exhaust even the strongest, and devastate relationships. We’ve been there. We’re here to help. Learn more.

Healing For Communities

We work to decrease stigma, to educate and inspire, and to be there before the point of crisis. It costs a fraction of what it would to care for people otherwise. Moreover, it is the compassionate, supportive answer for our neighbors and friends. Learn about our community outreach programs.

Building for Mental Health

Our $3 million campaign will ensure The Josselyn Center can support those in need for the next 50 years and beyond. But only if we all help.

Accessible, Compassionate Space

Providing accessibility and a warm, inviting and healing space

The Josselyn Center is a 50 year-old, split-level building in need of an elevator, wider hallways, updated bathrooms and refreshed client space.

Innovative Programs

Expanding services to meet client needs

Our community needs crisis response, increased psychiatric services and expressive therapies (art, music, etc.).

Secure Future

Growing our reserves

Government funding and reimbursements are perpetually in jeopardy. We need sufficient reserves to ensure we can survive unexpected cuts in funding and delays in payment.
