May is Mental Health Month

Everyone wants good mental health! Help provide financial assistance for those who need it.


Our fundraising event is over, but the need remains! Because of the pandemic more people are without jobs or insurance, and now, more than ever, need a therapist who can navigate the changes with them.  Samaritan Counseling Center has provided people with a place to go, no matter their ability to pay, and we need your help to meet the needs of this challenging time. Now, more than ever, your donation can make the difference in someone's life who is struggling to cope.

Here are some facts about Samaritan that might help you make a generous decision:

  1. We help about 1,700 individuals every year achieve mental wellness
  2. Over 24% are children 3-17 years old, many come in as couples or families, and about half are individuals working through difficult circumstances.
  3. More people than ever have required financial assistance. We will provide about $150,000 in sliding scale and fee scholarships.
  4. This year more people than ever have called for help with anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, suicidal thoughts, and other challenging issues.
  5. We partner with dozens of agencies, corporations, foundations and individuals to build healthy, happy, collaborative communities.
  6. Samaritan is growing to meet the demand for mental health care and we need your help! We have 18 therapists specializing in many disciplines, meeting with all ages and stages of life.

Samaritan Counseling Center provides hope, help, and healing through professional counseling and psychiatry to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families throughout the Northwest Suburbs. Our vision is to improve mental and emotional wellbeing by providing excellent, caring counseling and psychiatry, building resiliency skills, integrating mindfulness and/or spirituality and offering mental health education throughout the communities we serve.

THANK YOU for your generosity!
