General Information
Description of ServiceOrissa Healy House is an 8-bed crisis community residence program licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health, serving male and female children aged 5 through 12 who are experiencing a situational crisis and have a mental health diagnosis at the time of admission. The goal of the program is to restore family equilibrium and avoid psychiatric hospitalization by providing up to three weeks of out-of-home placement for the child. The children work on individualized treatment goals and return to their parents after three weeks time.

This service provides children with a short term out-of-home placement while they work toward stabilization and eliminating the need for a psychiatric hospitalization.
