Your Mental Health Matters

Lakeview Pantry believes that fostering a healthy mind is just as vital to your well being as maintaining your physical health. That’s why we make mental wellness a priority for our clients.

Are you struggling with depression or anxiety? Having a hard time adjusting to a recent change in your life? Need someone to talk to about your gender identity or a past trauma? Lakeview Pantry provides mental wellness services that are tailored to your needs.

Our team of licensed clinicians, social workers and supervised counseling students offers individual, couples and group therapies. Our program provides short-term (averaging 3-4 months of weekly sessions) mental health counseling with a focus on crisis stabilization and connection to long-term mental health services as needed.

To request counseling services, please call a member of our Social Services team at 773-525-1777 ext. 244 or email We will make every effort to get you scheduled for an appointment as soon as possible. Certain times of year are busier than others and a short wait may be necessary. There are no residency requirements for our mental health program, but those within the Pantry service areas are given scheduling priority.

As a free, private resource, your goals and hopes determine our course of action. Please know that you are not alone. We are here to assist and support you.
