Pillars Community Health is an innovative health and social services agency, one of the first nonprofits inthe state of Illinois to integrate primary medical and dental care with mental health and social services.

Healing, caring and educating are the heart of what we do. On any given day, we are sheltering families from domestic violens, providing restorative dental care, changing the converation about sexual assault on college campuses, teaching young children who are enrolled in Head Start, counseling thoe recovering from opiod abuse, empowering clients with mental illness, and helping patients manage chronic illnesses-and these are just some examples of the work we do, woth that is so needed in our communities. At the heart of all of it is our desire to heal, care, and educate; to stand as strong as pillars on behalf of every person who is reaching for a better future; to influence the whole health of the people we serve and bring about a healthier community.

Open Access Psychiatry Services is available for Lyons Township Residents with a Primary Care Provider external to Pillars Community Health. To facilitate appropriate treatment, all patients must have a screening assesment with our Pillars Community Health counselor prior to their first psychiatric visit. This program is in addition to the current psychiatry services Pillars Community Health offers for its primary care patients. Open Access means a patient can have a Primary Care provider other than Pillars Community Nurse. They will not need to change their PCP in order to be seen. Click here for more information.
