ORGANIZATION

Founded in 1951, our mission has remained unchanged over the years. The Josselyn Center provides affordable mental health services that make lives better for our clients, their families and the community. Located in Northfield and Waukegan, Illinois, we deliver comprehensive services on a sliding fee scale to help our clients, many of whom are low-income. The Josselyn Center services include outpatient therapy, psychiatry (including tele-psychiatry), case management, supported employment, wellness, outreach, family resources and a therapeutic summer day camp. Clients come from more than 60 communities across northern Cook and Lake counties. The Josselyn Center is the only outpatient psychiatric provider to Medicaid recipients in a 375 square mile area.
