Our Mission Statement 

Fairwinds—Nantucket’s Counseling Center provides confidential, quality professional care to adults and youth on Nantucket who seek mental health and addiction services. All are welcome, regardless of ability to pay.

Sixty Years

About 65 years ago, members of the Nantucket community gathered to discuss the critical need for an organization that could serve as a source of hope for those islanders who were affected by mental health issues. Since that time, formally incorporated under the name Family & Children’s Services of Nantucket in 1962, we have worked tirelessly to create an organization that could serve as a safe place for our patients and stand as a symbol of hope for the island.
