Opportunities. Second Chances. Choices. Bright Starts. That's what we do here.
We believe mental health is essential to the well-being of our community. HSS provides counseling, substance use prevention services, support groups, and a variety of individualized programs to help individuals aged 5 to 100 improve mental health and live their best lives.
We believe all people have the right to pursue their goals and dreams. Through our job training and community employment services, HSS helps individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental health concerns recognize their talents, develop skills and find employment in the community.
"HSS has helped me learn to budget my money and gave me a job that gave me work experience and responsibilities. I have been able to learn how to be more independent with my life."
"I feel the best I have ever felt in my ife thanks to the help of my counselor and I have been able to remain sober for the last year."
"I have struggled with the disease of addiction for many years. HSS has helped me in all aspects of my life. I am and will be forever grateful for the hope, faith and strength they have given me when I wasn't able to give to myself. I truly believe HSS saved my life."
"(HSS is) the best agency provider in the Region Five area (Bond, Randolph, Madison, St. Clair and Monroe counties.) I am extremely happy with all aspects of the organization. They should be very proud of the way they have established themselves in the area."
