The Loyola Community and Family Services clinic is the anchor project for Partners for Health and an interdisciplinary effort to provide low-cost mental health services to families residing in the Rogers Park and Edgewater communities. The clinic, which is housed in the University’s Granada Center on Sheridan Road, was developed by a number of University partners, including the Social Work - TEST2 and School of Education.

The clinic will serve as a facility for training externs from the School of Social Work and School of Education. In addition to working in the clinic, these externs will also have the opportunity to, under staff supervision, provide school-based services such as group therapy and consultations at local schools, including Nicholas Senn High School in Edgewater.
