Why We Exist
Chicago is considered by many to be ground-zero in the fight for health equality and equity. In the late 1960's, Dr. Martin Luther King and civil rights leaders planned direct action against Chicago hospitals that failed to give equal treatment to people of color. These efforts left a profound mark on the healthcare systems and their fight to imporve heatlh equity can be felt and exprienced more than five decades later. Wellness Home Behavioral Health Services aims to continue the fight for health equity by breaking down barriers that limit one's ability to access wellness services. We understand that the battle for health equality is not simply defined by racial desparity in the traditional healthcare systems, rather that it encompasses behavioral and mental health care for all who are unable to access it regardless of race, sexual orientation, and gender identiy. Wellness Home Behavioral Services offers innovative behavioral treatments and programs that are integrated with a phillosphy of whole person preventative care; An approach that seeks to imporve our quality of mind, body, and soul.
