Behavioral Health

St. Lawrence Health's Behavioral Health Services clinical treatment team pride themselves in offering compassionate, integrated, holistic, evidence-based treatment that is comprehensive and individualized.

A new Behavioral Health wing opened at Gouverneur Hospital in the spring of 2021. NYS Office of Mental Health, and NYS Office of Addiction Services And Support (OASAS) services are provided at this location. Mental health services for children, adolescents, and adults are available, along with intensive outpatient services.

We believe our primary responsibility is to provide a therapeutic environment and the resources for restoring and maintaining health. We provide interventions that allow individuals to reduce their symptoms, regain their confidence, and achieve greater levels of functioning in their lives.

Our goal is to provide effective interventions that will assist individuals in resolving emotional and psychological problems, maintain stability over time, and facilitate independent functioning at home, work, school, and in their community.       

All visits and records are confidential.

Emotional Support Hotline available 24/7: (315) 261-5395.
