VCS Mental Health Clinic

The VCS Mental Health Clinic is an Article 31 (MHOTRS) mental health clinic licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health to provide outpatient mental health treatment (including individual therapy and psychiatric services) to children (age 10+) and adults (age 18+) with a diagnosable mental health condition.

The major ways in which the clinic differs from the general counseling program are that we accept insurance, offer access to a psychiatrist, and are staffed by licensed clinicians.
