The Josselyn Story

Josselyn is a nonprofit community mental health provider offering a full range of therapeutic care, including therapy, psychiatry, case management, art therapy, and employment support.

Josselyn’s mission of providing Mental Health for All ensures cost is not a barrier to receive mental health treatment and support. Josselyn works with every client to ensure access to care regardless of income and insurance, including a sliding fee scale based on eligibility.

Commitment To Affordability

Since our founding, our commitment to affordability has never wavered.

Though government funding fluctuates, our mission to provide the highest quality of care does not.

In addition to most major insurance plans, Josselyn provides psychiatric and supportive services under Medicaid/Medicare and offers a sliding fee scale based on income eligibility.

Josselyn is able to provide services to all due to the generosity of individuals in our community, corporate partners and foundations, as well as grants.
