People who have mental illness can face many challenges. And if they have vision loss, physical disabilities or chronic illnessesas well, these can make life even more challenging. We understand. If a family member or someone whom you care for is affected by 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
- Medical coordination and liaison
- Skill-building to manage psychiatric symptoms
