Patient Resources

"Many people try to manage mental illness without help, although most psychiatric disorders are highly treatable. They can be as serious and debilitating as any medical condition —even if you can't see them in the same way as someone walking around with a broken bone. Why would you not get treatment?" —Simon A. Rego, PsyD

Montefiore's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences offers multiple services and treatment options, as well as empowering resources to help people living with mental illness. Do not suffer alone.

From our active outpatient mental health and addiction services, to the many primary care adult and pediatric medicine practices within the Montefiore Medical Group, we can provide the care you need to get well and live better.

Resources are also essential. To assist in bridging the mental health learning curve that many people have, you can explore a range of options for education and discovery.

Remember too that we are here to help.  Call us at 718-430-2290 to learn more about mental health services and treatment at Montefiore.
