Founded in 1962, the mission of YFC is opening doors to mental healthcare so people can cope, heal, and thrive. We provide culturally sensitive, quality care delivered with dignity, respect, and compassion.

We know that emotional wellness provides the solid foundation we all need to fulfill our potential. We understand how a mental illness, difficult life transition, or traumatic event can crack this foundation, causing damage and instability in someone’s life.

Our professional counseling services help people at all stages of life repair these cracks to reach their highest level of functioning at school, home, at work, engage in healthy relationships, and be productive members of society.

Our service delivery strategies are designed to help people from all walks of life access our compassionate, client-centered counseling services. We offer affordable counseling in Spanish at sites in Libertyville and Gurnee.

By helping people overcome barriers when seeking mental healthcare, we strive to build safe and vibrant communities where everyone can realize their full potential.

Our licensed counselors and therapists offer client-centered treatment for people of all ages, including children, teens, and adults. Our clients are individuals, couples, and families who are struggling with depression, grief, relationship issues, or myriad of other life challenges.

Because the cost of professional counseling services is too often a barrier to receiving treatment, YFC is committed to providing affordable options for those who are uninsured or experiencing financial difficulties. YFC was founded on the belief that everyone should have access to quality mental health care, regardless of ability to pay. Improving access to services remains an essential part of our mission today, and we work with other health care providers and community organizations to achieve this goal.
