We offer our students intensive clinical experience and supervision, a variety of academic programs and opportunities to work with diverse populations. With your support of scholarships, we can also provide access to more students.

Your support helps to educate the future leaders in the field of behavioral health.

Our graduate-level therapists-in-training from our Master of Arts in Counseling and Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy programs at Northwestern University provide therapy in the Bette D. Harris Family & Child Clinic. They are educated and closely supervised by our highly trained, licensed therapists and practice The Family Institute’s model of care, working within a larger multi-systemic context and providing culturally competent services with the flexibility necessary when working with underserved and/or under-resourced clients.

A donation to scholarships at The Family Institute benefits clients in the Clinic today, and has ripple effects for years to come as students graduate and work to create change and improve mental and whole health throughout their career.
