People who are blind or visually impaired and have mental illness face many challenges. We understand. If a family member or someone whom you care for is affected by vision impairment and mental illness, let us help.

We help clients overcome challenges in a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment. Licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health, our daily program is designated as a Comprehensive Outpatient Program Service (COPS), and is open to adults 18 and older. Our goal is to help clients remain in their communities, enter into vocational/rehabilitation programs, and avoid psychiatric hospitalization.

Lighthouse Guild’s interdisciplinary team of psychiatrists, social workers, case managers and creative arts therapists provides an array of services, including:

  • Case management
  • Group therapy
  • Crisis intervention
  • Psychopharmacology
  • Medical coordination and liaison
  • Skill-building to manage psychiatric symptoms
