Barber Behavioral Health Institute Opens Outpatient Clinic

The Barber Behavioral Health Institute opened an Outpatient Clinic to provide therapy, counseling and medication management to meet the needs of children, adults and families throughout Erie County.

The Barber Behavioral Health Institute Outpatient Clinic is located in a modern, newly renovated suite at 1621 Sassafras Street.  The centrally-located facility offers comfortable accommodations for individual, couples and family counseling and group therapies and ample accessible free parking.

The treatment team includes board certified psychiatrists, registered nurses, licensed psychologists and mental health counselors.

The Barber National Institute has been providing behavioral health and medication management to individuals with intellectual disabilities since its founding in 1952.  Within the past decade, it has expanded its full range of behavioral health services to serve all children with a mental health diagnosis. 

The new facility is both a continuation of its mission and an effort to meet community need, according to John Barber, president and chief executive officer of the Barber National Institute.  “We have a long history of responding to needs in our community with high quality, innovative services that have been recognized both national and internationally,” said Barber.  “We are now extending our behavioral health services in a setting that will be very accessible and beneficial to all children, adults and families who are looking for support to help address a wide variety of behavioral issues and achieve their potential for healthier, more productive lives.”

The new Outpatient Clinic will offer treatment for a wide range of behavioral diagnoses including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorders and trauma caused by grief, loss or abuse.

Most major insurances will be accepted and we are currently in the final stages of credentialing with insurance programs.
