Maimonides cares for your mental and behavioral health
Developing and maintaining harmonious family relationships involve positive interactions and commitment among family members. We know this can be challenging when behavioral concerns emerge within the family, and we’re here to help. Our compassionate behavioral health professionals believe the relationship between physical and mental processes is crucial in understanding behavioral issues in children, adolescents, and adults.
Maimonides has developed an outstanding reputation for multidisciplinary psychiatric care and provides an extensive range of mental and behavioral healthcare services. The department offers comprehensive assessment, treatment planning, and therapeutic services to meet the mental health and developmental needs of children, adults, and families in Brooklyn and beyond.
The development and care your child deserves
Our team provides symptom-focused behavioral evaluation and treatment of pediatric developmental behavior. We emphasize the relationship between the physical and psychological processes in children and adolescents and provide care in a child-friendly environment.
The child and adolescent outpatient services provide mental healthcare to children and adolescents and their families. Our goal is to help children and adolescents live a better life. For more information, call (718) 283-8128.
Providing acute psychiatric care for adults
Our psychiatric inpatient services are comprised of 2 units. Each unit provides acute care of patients age 18 and older who require hospitalization. In addition to 24-hour nursing care, our services include individual, group, and family therapies, psychopharmacology, psychological testing, electroconvulsive therapy, and dance, music, and art therapies.
The adult outpatient service provides mental health services to adults. Maimonides is sensitive to the needs of patients, which is why many of our clinicians are bilingual.
We also provide additional services, including:
- Crisis intervention
- Group therapy
- Individual psychotherapy
- Medication management
We offer wellness and recovery services
The service is a dynamic and voluntary, group therapy-focused program providing treatment for patients diagnosed with acute or chronic mental illness. The multidisciplinary clinical team, consisting of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, mental health workers, and other support staff, helps patients develop the social and emotional skills necessary to cope effectively in a community environment. The enhancement of patient strengths and functional self-awareness is emphasized to reduce relapse and the need for subsequent hospitalization. We know this can be a stressful time for families and loved ones, which is why we are committed to enhancing our patients’ emotional, physical, and mental well-being in a supportive environment.
In addition to traditional individual and group psychotherapy and medication management, we provide additional specialized activities and therapy groups, including family therapy. Informal socialization opportunities are available during meals (we serve breakfast and lunch to all of our patients) and at other times. Specific treatment programs are available for Russian and Spanish speaking patients. For more information in Spanish, call (718) 283-8078, and for more information in English, call (718) 283-7830.
