APCC's Counseling, Mentoring and Family Support Services program provides counseling to individuals between the ages of 10 - 24 years of age who may be suffering from depression, anxiety, bullying, grief, trauma and more. Our team of licensed therapists provide one-on-one counseling sessions with clients at our Albany Park facility as well as on-site sessions with students attending our CPS partner schools. Our Community Based counseling services are free of charge and offered in English and Spanish.
GOALS AND OUTCOMES
APCC's counseling programs strive to help youth gain needed developmental assets and coping skills, to become happy, healthy, socially adjusted, well educated and contributing members of society by helping them to deal effectively with low self-esteem, challenges related to feelings of anger, poor social skills, exposure to trauma, and lack of family support.
Youth receiving counseling services are expected to see a reduction in emotional symptoms, low self-esteem, anger, behavioral problems, aggression, and impulsivity. At the same time, they will see improvement in grades and behavior, build resilience and social-emotional skills, and gain peer and parent support. 80% of all clients surveyed in our program feel that they have made an improvement in their lives due to counseling interventions.
