CYN Counseling Center

CYN Counseling Center is a non-profit comprehensive community based counseling center that serves children, adolescents, and adults who are struggling with a variety of mental health issues. CYN offers general and specialized counseling and psychotherapy, case management, crisis intervention, and community education.



CYN Counseling Center is a Lake County, Illinois nonprofit community counseling agency. For over 40 years our mission has remained to preserve and strengthen families while protecting children from abusive or high-risk situations. CYN works to transform the lives of our most vulnerable and at-risk youth, families and adults and collaborate with area organizations to address complicated issues and create lasting change.
CYN began as a case coordination agency for the most complex cases of child abuse. Today, we are a comprehensive mental health center, accessible to all.

By providing counseling, psychotherapy, assessment, specialized treatment, prevention programs, case work services, and community education, our goals are to:

  • Increase access to needed mental health treatment.
  • Foster improved mental health through counseling, psychotherapy, crisis intervention, community education, & prevention services.
  • Reduce unnecessary entry into the juvenile justice, child welfare, or mental health systems.
  • Promote partnerships among community service providers to reduce duplication of services and cultivate healthier communities
