The Behavioral Health Services Program of Finger Lakes Health offers a full range of services, provided by highly trained professionals from a variety of disciplines. The dedicated team provides personalized, confidential, compassionate inpatient and outpatient care for adults. Finger Lakes Health is committed to providing comprehensive, quality services that are accessible and include evaluation, treatment, outreach, intervention, education and consultation.
The Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit is located at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital, 418 North Main Street, Penn Yan. The secure, 10-bed inpatient unit provides a safe and professional setting to assist patients in managing their acute psychiatric needs. A multi-disciplinary treatment team includes psychiatric nurses, social workers, counselors and a psychiatrist, who assist patients in their stabilization, treatment and discharge planning to return to the community.
The unit consists of quiet areas for individual and group therapy sessions, family conferences, a communal dining area, and therapeutic activities.
Patients are considered an active part of their treatment and discharge planning. Meetings with the patient, their family and members of the treatment team help to assure that safe and reasonable plans are in place to offer patients continued success in their aftercare.
Outpatient services are offered at the John D. Kelly Behavioral Health Center, 465 North Main Street, Penn Yan, just north of the main hospital. The Center provides clinic services to adults. Services include:
Continuing Day Treatment for people who need contact at the Clinic several times per week.
Individual Therapy and Therapy Groups offer practical approaches for learning to manage mental health issues.
Outreach Services for adults who have conditions that prevent them from coming into the Clinic for traditional clinic therapies.
Case Management Services for adults who need assistance working their way through linkage to other medical services, community agencies, housing programs or obtaining benefits.
Therapy Groups offer practical approaches with peer input for learning to manage mental health issues.
Crisis Services are provided 24 hours-a-day by the clinic and hospital staff for prompt care of psychiatric emergencies.
