Turning Point Behavioral Health Care Center has been serving the community with distinction for over 50 years. Turning Point is a non-profit outpatient mental health center located in Skokie and serving children and adults from throughout the Chicago metropolitan area with a mission to provide solid support, when you need it most. Turning Point serves approximately 1,400 individuals annually and is committed to providing expert, affordable, and compassionate care to people during some of the most difficult times of their lives.
Brief or long-term care is available. Turning Point provides individual and family therapy for adults and children beginning at age six, group therapy, case management, a residential living program, and crisis services including The Living Room at Turning Point.
Our community is diverse. Clients range widely in age, diagnosis, and socioeconomic group. Client cultural, ethnic and religious orientations are as diverse as the staff available to serve them. The Turning Point staff and board are currently participating in a multi-year training program in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Turning Point is committed to growing in its recognition of the barriers to care, of racial biases and other forms of oppression, and to focusing energy on this important work.
Turning Point has received highest ratings by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), and has been honored with numerous local and national awards including the 2017 Excellence in Mental Health Award from the Illinois Association for Behavioral Health and the 2015 Impact Award for Excellence in Behavioral Healthcare Management from the National Council for Behavioral Health.
