ALBION – The Orleans County Department of Mental Health is announcing that effective Thursday, March 19, it will have the ability to do telephone counseling sessions for currently enrolled clients.

Anyone who feels the need to reschedule or cancel their appointment will now have the option of doing the session with their therapist from the comfort of their home. Of course, the clinic is still open for on-site sessions and has made all necessary adjustments to ensure the required “social distancing” necessary in this time.

For anyone new to the clinic, open access walk-in hours are still available and are on-site only. The clinic is spacious, comfortable and will have sufficient room to insure the health of any seeking services in these trying times.

The Department has posted to its site and to the Public Health site, tips for everyone to help cope with this crisis. The tips include suggestions for families with children and for caregivers who have elderly relatives. As always, the Care & Crisis Helpline is available 24/7 at (585) 283-5200 or Text Line 741741.
