Provides treatment and support services for people with a range of needs, from job- and family-related stress to serious, lasting disturbances. We help them stabilize their lives and improve their emotional well-being.
Psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and social workers staff two Catholic Charities mental health outpatient clinics, in Bay Shore, and Medford. Services are provided to children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Services include individual and group therapy, as well as prescribing and managing medications. Clinic case managers screen and schedule clients for treatment and assist with access to other services in the community.
