Catholic Family Services, founded in 1955, is a nonprofit mental healthcare provider that operates six offices spread throughout four St. Louis metro-area counties. In addition, agency clinicians provide onsite services to youth attending more than 100 area schools. Our office-based services include individual, group, and family counseling, psychiatric care, and parenting classes. Our school-based services include individual and group therapy, crisis intervention counseling, and classroom behavioral health presentations. In addition, we provide free-of-charge counseling to homeless youth living at five area shelters.
During our last fiscal year, we provided our services to 4,234 unduplicated clients. Our agency staffs 57 therapists, all of whom are master’s-trained, and three psychiatrists, all of whom are board-certified. We provide our services to all, irrespective of religion, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability, or other identifying characteristics. We are certified by the Missouri Department of Mental Health and fully accredited by the Council on Accreditation.
