RESPONSIVE, COMPASSIONATE CARE.
The Kedzie Center was created through the efforts of North River residents, who worked to ensure that all community members would have access to compassionate, quality and culturally-informed mental health care.
We provide individual, family and group therapy, psychiatric consultation, and guidance in identifying and accessing community resources; services are provided in both English and Spanish and are available to children, adolescents and adults.
We offer services to those living within the boundaries of the North River Expanded Mental Health Services Program.

After a time of reflection and self-care, The Kedzie Center would like to offer our support during this time of recovery.
The violence in Orlando has touched us all on so many levels - as Latinos, as part of the LGBTQ community, as Muslims, as young people and as members of the global community. We stand in solidarity with all who have been affected by the massacre in Orlando. We grieve with those who have lost loved ones and all of us whose world feels less safe now. We must continue our work to build strong communities that embrace all people with human dignity and respect. We must seek to better understand one another and to create safe spaces for health and well-being. We understand that violence has multiple contributing factors and we will continue to do the small acts that bring healing and peace to individuals, families and communities. At this time of mourning and trauma, we take pause to reflect, and stand together to continue our efforts toward that which reduces the manifestation of violence and hatred. We invite our community partners and friends to persist - in speaking the unspeakable - and working toward peace, healing and well-being.
Please let us know if we can be of support during this time. We will have a time of acknowledgement at our next Community Night on July 20th. Please contact us if you would like to co-host a Peace Circle at your organization.
