Behavioral Health

Mercy Medical Center's Behavioral Health Services have been meeting the behavioral health needs of the community since 1958 and are staffed by caring, qualified health professionals, including psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, licensed clinical social workers, licensed mental health counselors, registered nurses, licensed creative arts therapist, activities therapists and behavioral health aides.

Our medical staff includes the Department of Psychiatry, whose members are privileged to admit to our Inpatient Psychiatric Unit and consult to other medical units within the hospital. Many of our psychiatrists also provide treatment and leadership to several of our outpatient treatment programs.

Mercy's Behavioral Health Services offers the full continuum of care, including Inpatient Psychiatry, Outpatient Mental Health, Chemical Dependency outpatient program and Partial Hospital Program. The outpatient behavioral health program was designated as an Integrated Behavioral Health Service by NY State in March 2013 and now offers on-site Physical Health services.
