Chicago Intensive Mental Health Center

Our Goals for Psychiatric Care

Compass Health Center is cutting edge in our approach to intensive level mental health treatment. Our goal is to help patients overcome debilitating psychiatric symptoms through scientifically proven treatment modalities.

Our on-site multi-disciplinary staff includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, family therapists, nurses and education specialists in both our Chicago and North Shore facilities. From our outstanding clinical staff to the physical space, the whole person is appreciated in creating and providing successful psychiatric treatment.

Why was Compass Health Center established?

We recognized our community’s need for intensive non-hospital based psychiatric care. We founded Compass to meet this critical need and provide cutting edge, science-based psychiatric treatment. Our passionate, experienced and insightful staff embodies our founding vision of providing the best possible psychiatric care for our patients.

Who are the members of our treatment team?

Our team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, family therapists, clinicians , nurses, special ed teachers and office staff are completely devoted to our mission. All staff remain on-site during all hours of operation relevant to their responsibilities.

How are we different?

Most intensive psychiatric programs are part of large medical hospitals. These hospitals often need to  divide their resources among different medical obligations.  At Compass Health Center, we solely focus on intensive level psychiatric treatment, so all of our resources are dedicated to this treatment.
