Kelly Behavioral Health
The John D. Kelly Behavioral Health Center offers individual, family and group therapy for children, age five and older, and adults with mental health and behavioral issues in an outpatient setting. Children under age five may be seen by specific physician referral. Continuing Day Treatment is offered for people needing contact with the center several times per week.
The Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Program serves adults over the age of 18 who require intensive daily programs to assist them in functioning independently in the community or in the least restrictive environment outside of a hospital. Groups are conducted daily for the treatment of such problems as Anger Management, Anxiety Control, Independent Living Skills, Avoiding Substance Abuse (MICA), and Management of Symptoms related to other psychiatric conditions.
Case Management Services are provided to adults who need assistance working their way through linkage to other medical services, community agencies, housing programs, or in order to obtain benefits.
Outreach Services are provided to adults who have conditions that prevent them from coming into the clinic for traditional clinic therapies. A psychiatric nurse who implements and monitors the psychiatric treatment plan conducts home visits for these individuals.
The Center is staffed by Master's Degree-level social workers and nurses who are highly qualified treatment specialists, and a board certified adult-child psychiatrist oversees the clinic. The Center is certified by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Wednesdays until 7 p.m. If you must cancel an appointment, please notify the center by phone 24 hours in advance.
Crisis Services are provided by the center and hospital staff for prompt care of psychiatric emergencies. This service is available 24 hours a day.
Most insurance plans require a referral to the John D. Kelly Behavioral Center. Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) require that the patient be in good standing with his or her physician, before the PCP will call the insurance provider for a referral. The referral is required before services are to be provided.
