Outpatient Clinic

Opening doors to mental health services for youth and family

For more than 30 years, the OLV Human Services Outpatient Clinic has been a beacon of hope for youth and families in Western New York facing mental health challenges. We provide care and counseling for children, adolescents, and adults with behavioral, emotional and psychiatric difficulties of varying levels of severity.

Licensed, Masters level therapists work with the support of a Board certified psychiatrist to provide over 400 children each year with the treatment they need, helping to strengthen families and communities. Treatment plans are tailored to person and may include Individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy, as well as medication management.

Our program serves over 29 school districts and also provides services through satellite clinics in the Buffalo Public School System.
