Welcome to CHHAMH University (CHHAMH-U)!

Our CHHAMH-U Program aims to remove the financial, systemic and emotional barriers to help make therapy more easily accessible for the Black citizens of Chicago by bridging the gap between various communities and therapists through this scholarship fund to covers therapy costs in which will allow people to focus on healing.

Please note: this scholarship is intended for those who may not otherwise be able to meet the costs of therapy on their own.

With our Partial Scholarship program, you will receive 10 free therapy sessions with one of our trusted licensed therapist partners. The full terms are:

  • Your first two sessions are for intake and assessment purposes.
  • Take your time and try your best to enjoy the other 8 sessions.
  • Use your 8th session to access if you need to further the therapy experience.
  • If applicants miss two sessions without an attempt to communicate or reschedule, you will forfeit your scholarship.

Before you fill out our intake form, we recommend you look through our therapist page to see who you might like to schedule sessions with. You will be asked to share your preferred specialists on the intake form.

Our intake form can be found here


Please note: That your intake form is for internal purposes only and will not be shared publicly.

If you have any questions and/or concerns about the process, you can email us at ntu@chhamh.org.
