Celebrates Importance of Josselyn’s Dedication to the Vision of Mental health for all.

Senator Laura Fine visited Josselyn’s Kane/Steinback building located at 1779 Maple Street in Northfield. Home to Josselyn’s Living Room, Drop-In Clinic, and new family therapy room, Fine said, “I’m glad you are here.”

Fine recognizes the importance of providing mental health care to everyone. As chair of the Illinois Senate Behavioral and Mental Health Committee, which includes colleagues across the aisle, Fine said, “While we may agree on little else, we all agree on the importance of mental health care access.”

Visitors receive compassionate support in a safe, welcoming space from Josselyn’s Peer Support Specialists.

The Drop-In is also available six days a week without appointment, forms or fees. This free service uses a peer support model to provide a stigma-free space for people to connect, socialize, and learn new tools and skills.

The new family therapy room is designed as a welcoming space for families of children and youth of all ages to meet with their family therapist. The space also hosts support groups focused on specific issues such as grief & loss.

The Kane/Steinback building has seen many transformations in the last five years, made possible by the generosity of the Kane and Steinback families.

Open six days a week, and supported by the Illinois Department of Human Services, Josselyn’s Living Room is open to all and welcomes anyone who is experiencing an emotional or mental health crisis.

When asked why they felt compelled to support the purchase of this building, Jim and Joanne Steinback said, “There is no vaccination for anxiety or depression. Treatment requires another human being who has had years of training. They’re the magic, but every therapist needs brick and mortar in which to operate. We can’t supply the magic, but we’re proud to have helped with the brick and mortar.”

During the visit, Fine added, “I can’t get over what you’ve done here. This is like a hidden gem.”

Josselyn is a nonprofit community health provider offering a full range of affordable, effective mental health services including therapy, psychiatry, case management, and employment support. Our vision of providing Mental health for all ensures we work with every client to provide access to care regardless of income and insurance, including a sliding fee scale based on eligibility.
