  -Ending the Silence
is an in-school presentation designed to teach middle and high school students about the signs and symptoms of mental illness, how to recognize the early warning signs and the importance of acknowledging those warning signs. Through this classroom presentation, students get to see the reality of living with a mental health condition.
*3 types of presentations are available: for students, for staff and also for families


-In Our Own Voice
trained presenters who are in recovery from mental illness share compelling personal testimonies about their experiences of living with and dealing with the challenges posed by mental illness.

 




 New Urgent Care Centers
for Mental Health,
Substance Use

Two mental health and substance use urgent care centers have opened. These walk-in clinics open 7 days a week are open to adults and children in the Hudson Valley. 
No appointment. No referral.

             Access: Supports for Living

Locations:
Union Street Community Counseling Ctr.
16-24 Union Street, Middletown 10940
Kaplan Family Counseling Center
21-23 Grand Street, Newburgh 12550
          Monday-Friday: 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.
         Saturday-Sunday: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
              & Holidays


Psychiatrists, licensed therapists, registered nurses, peers, care managers are available on site.

After checking into the Access urgent care center, the patient will go to the "living room", a place for the patient to chat with a counselor. Then a nurse will assess the patient to be sure there are no underlying medical issues. Following the health exam, the patient will meet with a therapist, with their family and support system if they wish.

On a case-by-case basis, a care manager can assist with resources such as financial struggles, food insecurity or housing issues.

A compassionate team will work with you to figure out what's happening and begin a plan for recovery, including referrals to the community provider of your choice for longer-term care, if that is what you need.

A patient will schedule, if necessary, follow-up treatment either with Access or with other partner psychiatric treatment.

Insurers will be billed directly for those who have insurance. However, due to a $4 million federal grant, for the next 2 years, out of pocket costs of patients who require treatment but are uninsured, will be covered. Even if you have insurance, your co-pay will be paid for.
