Epilepsy Foundation of LI Opens New Mental Health Clinic PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 08 June 2010 03:56
The Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island celebrated the grand opening of their new Article 31 Mental Health Clinic at a May 27th ribbon-cutting ceremony.  The new clinic is the first of its kind in the region, where licensed social workers will apply their expertise to patients dealing with epilepsy and/or other mental health disorders in one location.

County Executive Ed Mangano described the clinic as an important partnership between the public and private sectors.  “It offers those struggling with epilepsy and other disorders one professional clinic to address all issues,” he said.

“This was something very much needed on Long Island,” said Jennifer Colbert, Director of Clinical Services at the Foundation. “We are very excited to provide mental health services in Nassau County.”

“Rather than have to go to different places for treatment, here they can go to one center to get the help they need,” said County Legislator Rose Marie Walker.  “It’s great for the county to be a part of this.”

“If we are together nothing is impossible,” said Thomas M. Hopkins, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of the Foundation, quoting Winston Churchill.  He noted that the new resource was only possible through the “the successful alliance of Nassau County, the New York State Office of Mental Health, and the Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island.”
