Mental Health Clinics

Providing mental health counseling, crisis intervention and specialty services in clinic-based setting

WJCS operates New York State licensed clinics and satellites in the county. Behavioral health services are provided to people of all ages, socio-economic and demographic backgrounds. A professional staff of social workers and educational therapists, psychologists, adult and child psychiatrists work as a team to ensure coordinated client care. Individual, family and group psychotherapy is offered for children and adults. Supervised medication evaluation and management is available. 

Several clinics offer Dialectical Behavioral Therapy treatment and/or skills groups to help individuals reduce and cope with intense emotions and difficult-to-manage behaviors. WJCS also provides free Social & Emotional Wellness Screenings, confidential, early recognition and intervention screenings for youngsters age 3 - 18 aimed to identify children who have emotional needs that can affect how well they do in school and their ability to get along with friends and family. Spanish speaking staff is available at several sites.

As a designated Comprehensive Outpatient Services (COPS) provider, WJCS is a member agency of a county-wide service network. Individuals who are seriously mentally ill are treated on a priority basis. WJCS also serves homeless individuals and crime victims.

To monitor services in the FAMILY MENTAL HEALTH CLINICS, client satisfaction surveys are administered and a culturally and ethnically diverse Consumer Advisory Committee provides input into program development, implementation and review.
