About Us

Welcome to CYN Counseling Center!

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.
