We believe that the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive well-being of a child is vital to establishing a healthy community. Our vision is to provide comprehensive and bilingual behavioral health services in Chicago to address the needs of children, ages 0 to 18 years, along with the needs of their families living in the area.
CACS is a long-standing program that provides bilingual counseling services to children, starting at three years of age. Our mental health therapists provide individual, family, and group therapy, and case management. Services are delivered in the clinic, in schools, and homes, as determined by individual needs and concerns.
Counseling provides skills to help families cope with current life problems, but it also provides techniques to understand and address future issues. For example, therapists address family challenges when children manifest signs of anxiety, depression, ADHD, and various degrees of disruptive behavior, both at home and at school.
