MISSION OF THE MONTH • NOVEMBER: OPEN DOOR CLINIC

November introduces us to a new mission–the Open Door Clinic–with offices in Elgin and Aurora. Bethlehem’s mission funds will be given to the Elgin facility. One of the many services they offer is Behavioral Health which includes psychiatric and mental health therapy services. Their team is devoted to providing client-centered services and working with clients as they strive to improve the quality of their lives. The Behavioral Health Department provides services for individuals coping with both mental health and substance use concerns. They offer clients a safe, supportive, and confidential environment where they can continue to develop the skills they need to successfully manage life’s challenges. Their motto:
