Behavioral Health Centers

Talk about mental health .  .  . we're listening.

Northern Rivers three Behavioral Health Centers are licensed by the NYS Office of Mental Health to provide outpatient mental health treatment services to those individuals who need help managing emotional and behavioral challenges. Individuals who are age 64 or younger and who are experiencing social, emotional, family, or mental health related challenges are eligible for services. The center specializes in providing trauma-informed care as well as person-centered treatment. Our goal is to help individuals be successful in all aspects of their life.


Individual and family therapy is available. Psychiatric consultation and medication management for individuals are available as complementary services to the counseling. Therapy is provided by licensed mental health professionals.
