Chicagoland Community Referral Database

Chicago skyline along lakeshore path

For those students who wish to select their own therapeutic services in the community, we offer a data base of services in the Chicagoland area below. Please note that the UICCC’s inclusion of these treatment providers in this database does not mean that the UICCC endorses these treatment providers or that they will be available immediately. This database is provided simply as a free resource for students, faculty or staff to use to streamline the process of being linked with mental health services that meet their needs. We cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or timeliness of the information provided. It is important for you to verify provider information and contact your insurance company to confirm your coverage for that particular provider. Click here for more information about how to contact your insurance provider to inquire about coverage for mental health services and other relevant information.

For those students who would like a chance to discuss their needs and receive recommendations from a mental health professional, we invite you to schedule an initial consultation.  These recommendations may include services offered by the Counseling Center as well as specific referrals to community providers.  Please call 312-996-3490 and speak to a receptionist to schedule an initial consultation.

Sliding Scale Providers

Some providers offer what is called a “sliding scale fee,” which is  an out-of-pocket fee per session that “slides” to an amount that is based on household income and ability to pay. This can sometimes be a more affordable way for students who do not have insurance/prefer not to use their insurance to access care.

Getting Connected Using Campus Care

The only mental health agency that is in-network with Campus Care is the UIC Department of Psychiatry’s Neuropsychiatric Institute which is referred to as NPI.  NPI provides psychiatric services/medication management, individual therapy(either CBT or Psychodynamic), and testing services to students who have UIC’s Campus Care Insurance. Campus Care is essentially an HMO insurance. With Campus Care, students will usually have a $15 co-pay per session (due to the pandemic the co-pay has been waived until August 15th, 2021). NPI also accepts many private insurances for  testing and psychiatric services only.  The available clinics at NPI are: Women’s Mental Health Clinic, Mood and Anxiety Clinic, Anchor Point First Psychosis Clinic, ADHD Clinic and a Recovery Clinic (medication management for student who have substance abuse or dual diagnosis), Bipolar Med Clinic, and Gender and Sexuality Clinic. NPI is located on the west side of campus on 912 S Wood Street. For information about dates, fees, and how to get Campus Care coverage over the summer, click here.

To get connected to NPI, please follow these instructions:

Step 1: Speak with a primary care physician at UIC Family Medicine about your mental health concerns (their number is 312-996-2901). They can authorize a referral for mental health services at NPI. If you do not have a PCP yet, when you call Family Medicine,  let them know you ae trying to establish care because you are looking to get referred to NPI.

Step 2: Once authorized, contact NPI at 312-996-2200 to schedule an appointment.

Per the Campus Care website:  “Students who are out of state: you will need to contact your primary care provider at your UI campus Primary Care Center to request a referral for care that is in the area where you are living currently.

Students who are in Illinois or Indiana: you can still utilize telehealth appointments with your Campus Care Primary Care provider. However, you must update your home address in your UI Health MyChart to your address in Illinois or Indiana in order for a physician to provide treatment.

Out of Network Care: 

Please contact your primary care physician at Family Medicine for direction on all non-emergent care. Out-of-network care authorized by your in-network primary care physician will be assessed at an in-network cost share and copayment. All members must establish a provider relationship prior to any referrals or treatment. This can currently be done remotely via a telehealth visit. Call your PCP for an appointment.”

The following accept many private insurance plans.
