About behavioral health services
Mental health and addictive disorders are not only among the most common illnesses in any community, they can also have the severest impact on functioning and quality of life. Like all healthcare consumers, people in need of behavioral health services represent every group you can possibly imagine—they’re our families and friends, our colleagues and neighbors.
Northwell Health Behavioral Health Services strives to address the diverse mental health needs of the communities we serve by providing a continuum of high-quality psychological services and behavioral health resources. These include emergency, inpatient, and outpatient services for people of all ages suffering from a variety of psychiatric disorders, as well as addictive disorders. We offer optimal access to behavioral health treatment and wellness services for the entire region. And we continue to strengthen our commitment to education and training in psychiatry and its related disciplines while expanding knowledge in the behavioral health sciences through clinical research.
Recognizing that behavioral health is a concern across the lifespan, we focus on issues impacting all age groups, from children and adolescents right up through the growing geriatric population. We make sure that our services meet the needs of our consumers, and we partner with patients and families as we build for tomorrow’s community behavioral health needs.
Working collaboratively across the health care system, we aim to continually identify and create optimal treatment environments and options, providing the necessary cutting-edge mental health services that keep our communities healthy and improve lives.
