what we do
Care is available to all, regardless of financial resources, insurance coverage or intensity of need. Turning Point is an outpatient mental health center that exists to provide relief, no matter who you are or what your situation might be.
Turning Point was established in 1969 as an area mental health center and has grown to serve residents in communities throughout metropolitan Chicago.
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. Fees structured on a sliding scale flex to align with each client’s income and family size.
In addition to primarily serving clients in Skokie and the surrounding communities of Morton Grove, Niles, Lincolnwood, and Evanston, Turning Point also sees clients from 47 other communities including clients from as far north as Antioch and McHenry to our western neighbors of Schaumburg and Lombard and south throughout the City of Chicago.
Our service is comprehensive. Brief or long-term care is available. Turning Point provides outpatient individual and group therapy for all ages, psychiatric evaluation and medication monitoring, case management, and a residential living program. Turning Point has consistently been awarded the highest rating from The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
