Behavioral Health

St. Lawrence Health System's Behavioral Health Services clinical treatment team pride themselves in offering compassionate, integrated, holistic, evidence-based treatment that is comprehensive and individualized.

We believe our primary responsibility is to provide a therapeutic environment and the resources for restoring and maintaining health. We provide interventions that allow individuals to reduce their symptoms, regain their confidence, and achieve greater levels of functioning in their lives.

Our goal is to provide effective interventions that will assist individuals in resolving emotional and psychological problems, maintain stability over time, and facilitate independent functioning at home, work, school, and in their community.       

All visits and records are confidential.
