Volunteer Psychiatrists

Needed: Psychiatrists to Offer Pro Bono Services

We are actively seeking additional Volunteer Psychiatrists to donate their time and expertise.

These heroes donate four hours a month seeing clients at our Northfield office. They allow us to provide mental health services to additional low-income or uninsured clients each year.

We truly cannot do it without you! We are so grateful for your gift of time and talent!

Become a Josselyn Champion!
