It is a difficult time for everyone, but especially those with mental illness. The Neighborhood Center behavioral health clinics are offering telehealth, or virtual therapy sessions to the community during the COVID-19 Crisis. All appointments are being taken by telephonic and virtual telehealth processes and they are still accepting new clients. Clients are being seen in person on a case by case basis as needs require.
