Mission of Service

We strive to ease the challenges of aging for older adults and their family members or caregivers through delivery of exceptional, culturally competent mental health care.

Target Population

We serve individuals aged 60 years and older with psychiatric illness, or caregivers with psychiatric illness or younger individuals with brain disease.

Description of Service Providers

Our service is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers representing nursing, social work, psychology and psychiatry.

Types of Services Provided

Our service provides an array of treatments including individual, family and group counseling. When appropriate, we collaborate with a patient’s primary care physician to provide pharmacotherapy (the use of specialized medications for the treatment of mental disorders such as depression or anxiety).

Special Features of Service

We are dedicated entirely to working with older adults and their loved ones. Our new location is highly accessible and features free parking. We are also on the RTS busline.
