MENTAL HEALTH + WELLNESS
Mental Health Care for Everyone
Mental health services can be hard to find and harder to afford. Fewer than a third of all Americans who suffer from a mental health issue receive adequate care. Serious mental illnesses are twice as common for people in poverty, even while the stresses of living paycheck-to-paycheck can be a powerful trigger for depression and anxiety. Working with our neighbors, we strive to address these inequities – because a strong, resilient community thrives on strong, accessible mental health services.
University Settlement is a leader in integrating robust, high quality mental health care into all of our programs – a vital investment in our neighborhoods. We partner with individuals and families to respond to the challenges life can present, offering high-quality care from culturally sensitive professionals. Our services are offered on a sliding fee schedule, and clients are not denied care if they’re unable to pay. Cultivating wellness is central to our approach; taking action with our neighbors to build things together relieves stress and supports vibrant mental health.
We have a long legacy doing this work – our innovative licensed clinic, the Consultation Center, was established over 65 years ago. We’ve developed a broad range of targeted mental health services to support the emotional well-being of all types of people, including children, teens, adults, parents, isolated elders, and caregivers. Whatever you’re going through, we’re here to help.
