Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI) provides a variety of mental health services for individuals and families living on the Northwest Side of Chicago. Treatment services are centered on each individual’s needs and goals for the future, and remain flexible as life changes occur. Services are culturally competent in English and Spanish, and include:

  • Counseling with individual, family and group sessions to help individuals improve their life choices, self-esteem, emotional control and relationships.

  • Psychiatric Evaluation and Medication Monitoring by Board-Certified psychiatrists who treat severe symptoms of mental illness.

  • Journeys, a group-oriented program that provides adults with a severe mental illness a safe place to learn, practice and integrate life skills that promote wellness and mental health recovery. Journeys teaches and reinforces skills that improve self-sufficiency and help individuals reach their potential.

  • Community Support–Team, which provides long-term intensive case management and support to persons whose severe mental illness has reduced their abilities to function in multiple areas of their lives, such as maintaining a household, performing self-care activities, managing their healthcare and obtaining mental health services, coping with crises and dealing with substance use. Services are offered in English and Spanish. Program eligibility is determined by the Department of Mental Health.

LSSI services are licensed by the Illinois Department of Mental Health and the Illinois Bureau of Accreditation, Licensure and Certification. LSSI accepts Medicare, Medicaid and All-Kids insurances that are not affiliated with a managed care organization.
