  • CDPH Mental Health Services: We provide direct services from five clinic locations across Chicago on a sliding fee scale.
  • Mental Health System: We work with a number of partners and make strategic investments to improve Chicago’s overall mental health system with a focus on providing services to those most in need. (This page is currently under construction)
  • Substance Use Disorder: We work to educate residents and generate awareness on prevention and treatment for substance use.
  • Violence Prevention: We work to prevent violence across the lifespan and reduce its negative impacts when it does occur. We do this through community education workshops and professional development and by working with a variety of stakeholders to support them in applying a violence prevention lens to the work they do.
