Service Description
Josselyn is a certified Community Mental Health Center which, for more than 70 years, has provided a full slate of quality, accessible mental health services, improving care for the patient in a coordinated setting with access to therapy, psychiatry, and other specialized services. Through our clinics in Northfield and Waukegan, we serve a diverse clientele of more than 4,200 children, adolescents, and adults from 100 communities across Cook and Lake Counties. In addition to therapy, for adults we have The Living Room and Drop-In Center. The Living Room is an accessible alternative to visiting a hospital or emergency room for anyone who is experiencing an emotional or mental health crisis. Josselyn’s Drop-In Center provides a stigma-free space for you to connect, socialize, and learn new tools and skills. For children and adolescents, we have Camp Neeka (8-12yrs) and Intensive Outpatient Program (12-18yrs). See our website for a full list of our support groups for all ages, including from LGBTQIA+ support, parenting, and navigating emerging adulthood.
