Services

The multi-disciplinary staff consisting of a psychiatrist, full and part-time psychologists, social workers, counselors, case managers and graduate level trainees, offer individual, group, family, couple and play therapy, psychiatric assessment, advocacy, and case management through our Outpatient Child and Adolescent Program. Psychological assessment is also available for diagnostic purposes through our Psychological Testing program.

If medication may be helpful, Psychiatric Services can provide medication evaluation and monitoring. Additionally, PCIT offers a specialized behavior management program designed for young children experiencing behavioral and/or emotional difficulties and their families. Individual adult therapy is not a focus of service at DePaul FCS, however, parental support services are available.

In addition to the services offered at DePaul FCS, therapists offer group and individual counseling at schools and other agencies serving children and adolescents in the community. The Center ​maintains a Mental Health Clinic at Manierre Elementary School. Individual, family, and group services are provided on site, as well as intakes and psychological testing. DePaul FCS staff is available to meet with any such agency to offer its assistance or to share additional information about our services and programs. Call Intake (773-325-7780) to make such a request. Community-based services such as problem assessment, linkage and referral, and psychoeducational programs are also offered.
