Adult, Child, and Family Clinic
The BHSN Outpatient Clinic provides a full range of psychiatric services within a clinic setting to Clinton County individuals who have experienced a serious mental illness. Many recipients are referred following psychiatric hospitalization and are in need of an array of treatment and rehabilitation services to fully optimize their recovery. The Clinic is staffed by licensed mental health professionals who provide assessment and treatment services, verbal therapies, medication therapy and education, health screening and referral, case management and crisis interventions. The Clinic emphasizes medication management; brief solution focused and cognitive behavioral therapies; crisis prevention; and case management services. Clinic services are highly integrated with rehabilitation and support activities as determined by recipient’s individual service plan.

School-Based Mental Health Services (SBMHS) are mental health service provider programs licensed by the NYS Office of Mental Health, which operates on-site within a school facility. A School-Based clinic operates in the school setting at minimum one day per week and can be based on the level of need of the student population. Students who are referred to the satellite clinic for services will, with parent or guardian permission, receive an initial assessment by a NYS licensed mental health professional to determine if the child is experiencing a mental health condition that warrants further services. If services are needed and consented to, a student can receive clinical services on-site at the school. Psychiatric and medication services, if appropriate, are available to students off-site, at our clinic’s main office in Morrisonville.
The PROS Learning Center is a complete recovery program that brings rehabilitation, support and clinic services together into one plan that supports participants’ ambitions and hopes. PROS services are broken down into four categories of services with the Individualized Recovery Plan keeping everyone working in the same direction – helping an individual obtain a desired life role.
BHSN Crisis Services provide 24-hour outreach support and intervention to seriously mentally ill adults who are experiencing a mental health crisis. Alternatives to hospitalization are explored and linkages arranged where appropriate. This service is frequently effective in providing individuals, who may not be able to utilize office based services, with the interventions and support which make hospital care unnecessary. This program is highly effective at reducing psychiatric hospitalizations by connecting individuals with needed community outpatient services and resources.
Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) Services/Medication Grant Program
BHSN acts as the AOT Coordinator for Clinton County for court-ordered individuals needing community supervision. AOT/Intensive Case Management services are offered as a diversion from court-mandated services. The Medication Grant Program provides medication, at no charge, for individuals with a mental illness being discharged from the jail or hospital while their Medicaid application is pending.
