The mission of Levindale’s Outpatient Mental Health programs, which are associated with the Specialty Hospital at Levindale, is to provide a continuum of care that addresses the emotional, psychological and social issues that may be interfering with an individual's health and ability to function.
The intent of our programs is to provide mental health therapies to individuals so they can maintain a healthy outlook, whether they experience chronic or new-onset psychiatric/behavioral disorders. Levindale’s experts also provide follow-up plans that focus on each person’s well-being so they can live as independently as possible after discharge.
All participants receive an individualized treatment plan that helps them achieve their goals, using innovative, as well as proven, methods that teach them independent living skills and how to be productive members of the community.
Levindale’s Outpatient Mental Health Clinic is open to participants who may benefit from scheduled psychotherapy or medication management appointments. Patients are evaluated during their initial appointment, and follow-up appointments are scheduled as needed.
Medication management is also provided, if indicated, and individual and group therapies are used to enhance communication, expression of feelings and reality orientation.
Treatment is provided by a team of caring and experienced behavioral health specialists that includes:
- Board Certified Geriatric Psychiatrists
- Certified Clinical Nurse Specialists
- Certified Licensed Social Workers
Outside referrals are welcome from doctors, behavioral health professionals, assisted living/group home facilities, retirement communities, nursing homes, family members, and other involved people.
Levindale’s continuum of care is provided with many agencies that offer community resources, including Sinai Hospital and Jewish Family Services.
Patient, family and caregiver education is also provided.
Levindale’s programs are often partially covered Medicare and Medicaid and many health insurance companies.
