The Turning Point story

For more than 50 years, Turning Point Behavioral Health Care Center has provided solid support when and where it’s needed most. Our caring, compassionate team members help clients living with mental illness find ways to experience more fully functioning lives. They also contribute to creating healthier, happier communities where people can be heard, cared for, and respected.

Avenues of recovery

As a nonprofit outpatient mental health center, we offer multiple options for recovery, providing affordable, compassionate care to people during some of the most difficult times of their lives. Located in Skokie, Illinois, we serve approximately 1,400 children and adults each year from throughout the Chicago metropolitan area.

Committed to diversity and inclusion

Our clients range widely in age, diagnosis, and socioeconomic group. Their cultural, ethnic, and religious orientations are as diverse as the staff members who serve them. As an organization and as individuals, we are committed to eliminating barriers to care, racial biases, and other forms of oppression and to focusing energy on this important work.

Here when we’re needed most

Whether responding in the moment to someone experiencing a mental health crisis or working with clients to find longer-term solutions, we’re here to help. 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 and mobile crisis response teams that extend our reach further into our service area.
