Adler Community Health Services

Adler Community Health Services (ACHS), a division of Adler University, provides extensive psychological services for underserved communities in the Chicago area. Services are provided primarily by graduate students, who work under the supervision of experienced licensed staff clinical psychologists.  ACHS emphasizes the values of scientific rigor, social justice, and compassion. Our graduate students and staff psychologists are dedicated to understanding fellow humans in terms of their innermost emotional experience, social context, and biology so that those we serve are valued as holistic beings that span multiple dimensions.

ACHS emphasizes the highest standards of ethical and professional practice, and honors its work with individuals in all their rich diversity.  ACHS provides psychological services informed by the mission of Adler University, through clinicians who promote, engage and advance socially responsible practice, thus engaging communities, and advancing social justice. Through rigorous program evaluation and training standards, ACHS excels as a leader in the provision of services for the underserved.
