Behavioral Health Services

Community-Based Mental Health Programs

When one of our neighbors is in crisis, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens is here to offer an array of behavioral health programs. 

Our Behavioral Health Services are as varied as the issues that arise for those having difficulty adjusting at home, school, or in the community – issues such as depression, substance abuse, marital problems and other stress-related conditions.

Among the services provided by professional, dedicated staff are short-term and long-term counseling, stress management, activities therapy, vocational support and MICA services. Our community-based mental health clinics offer those with severe mental illness a broad range of outpatient services, while our housing facilities provide residents with independent living skills, health management, counselor visits and educational and recreational opportunities.

We also focus on prevention, especially for our most vulnerable neighbors: children at risk of being separated from their families.  The goals of our prevention programs are to strengthen family relationships in order to reduce the incidence of abuse and neglect.

Mental Health Programs

With more than 25 behavioral health programs that help individuals strive for rehabilitation and independence, our neighbors are given a real chance to lead fulfilling lives and become an integral part of the community.

Through our mental health services, we provide intensive training in daily living skills, behavior intervention, counseling, crisis and case management, socialization, discharge planning, medication management and support. We also provide a transitional housing program for mentally ill adults.

Please support our vital work with a tax-deductible donation today.  As one of the nation’s most efficient nonprofits, 91 cents of every dollar you give goes straight to programs like these that help our neediest neighbors.

Personalized Recovery Oriented Services (PROS) enables participants to pursue life goals with a focus on four domains: living/residential, education, socialization and employment. The program structure provides participants with the education and clinical support needed to promote improved well-being and independence by developing skills and abilities necessary to overcome barriers caused by mental illness. The program offers groups in all evidenced based practice areas, including clinical services, treatment for co-occurring disorders and family psycho-education through collateral visits. Community Rehabilitation and Support services are the main service component of PROS. They are designed to engage and assist participants in developing the skills and supports necessary to live as independently as possible in the community. Intensive Rehabilitation services are designed to assist the participant in attaining specific life roles. These services can also help to reduce the risk of hospitalization, loss of housing or involvement with the criminal justice system and allows an opportunity for family involvement in supporting and/or understanding the recovery experience. Ongoing Rehabilitation and Support services are designed to address the participant's needs as they join and maintain a position in the competitive workplace. This includes providing the participant with ongoing vocational counseling, advocacy & support while on the job.  Through implementation of the rehabilitation and recovery model of service provision, participants are effectively engaged in their own recovery planning. The intended result of PROS participation is becoming contributing members of the community through their work, relationships, homes and interests. 

Adults over the age of eighteen with a mental health diagnosis and who are functionally disabled due to that mental illness are eligible to join PROS. All consumers must have an Axis I diagnosis of mental illness.  Referrals can be made by multiple sources to include: psychiatric inpatient settings, outpatient mental health providers, ACT Teams, AOT, ICM, Probation/Parole, Mobile Crisis Teams, Residential settings, Parish, Schools, Employment programs and families.
