About the Counseling Center: The Counseling Center serves children aged six and older, adolescents and adults with severe emotional disturbances or serious mental illnesses, and their families. The center was made possible by a generous grant from the Winnebago County Community Mental Health Board (WCCMHB), whose funding is generated by a voter approved 1/2 cent sales tax to help fund mental health and substance abuse services throughout Winnebago County. Services at the center include: Comprehensive Assessment and Individualized Treatment; On-Site and Tele-Psychiatry; Individual and Family Counseling and Case Management. Services are prioritized for those who are eligible for Medicaid but are available to anyone in need who qualifies. To schedule an assessment or make a referral, please call 779-970-5605.

Susan Schroeder, CEO, LCSW of Stepping Stones of Rockford, Inc. said about the Counseling Center: "It has been my dream for years for Stepping Stones to bring mental health services to children, adolescents and their families. We are grateful to the voters of Winnebago County and the Winnebago County Community Mental Health Board for helping to make this a reality. I believe members of our community, who need mental health services, should have choices in where they receive that care. This center is now available to offer another option for counseling and related care."
