Two Evanston residents will be honored by a local health center for their commitment to mental health care.

Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin and architect Joseph J. Behles will be recognized by Turning Point Behavioral Health Care Center in Skokie at its annual benefit on June 20, the company announced Wednesday. Three Wilmette residents, as well as the company’s office and facilities manager, will also be honored.

“As a community-based mental health care provider, it is important that we listen to community members and agencies about needs and current gaps in essential services,” Turning Point CEO Ann Fisher Raney said in a news release. “This year’s benefit will be a wonderful way to spotlight the innovative approaches that Turning Point uses to expand our capacity to serve our residents.”

Turning Point is an outpatient mental health center that provides mental health care to those in the Chicago area. It’s benefit this year, titled “Cultivating Creativity and Innovation,” will take place at the Evanston Golf Club, 4401 Dempster St.
