Consultation Center

For over 65 years, University Settlement's Consultation Center has been a pioneer in providing innovative, comprehensive and culturally-sensitive mental health services to the Lower East Side and Chinatown communities. The Center is one of the few clinics of its kind offering services in Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin and English, enabling us to reach out to whole segments of the community that may be reluctant to seek out mental health services.

Supportive therapeutic services are available for every member of the family and our integrated approach includes individual, group, couples and family therapy. As a State-licensed mental health clinic the Consultation Center offers a wide variety of treatment options to community members confronting a complexity of problems, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Domestic Violence
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Family Crisis
  • Chronic Mental Illness
  • Mid-life Crisis
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Psychiatric Medication Management

Consultation Center staff consists of highly-trained and committed therapists, psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals, all licensed by New York State, as well as a New York State board-certified psychiatrist and child psychiatrist.

The Consultation Center is an approved provider for various insurance plans including Medicaid, Medicaid Managed Care and Medicare. A Sliding Fee Schedule is available and clients are not denied services for inability to pay.

The Consultation Center is an Article 31 program licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
