Youth Mental Health Services

In partnership with the Commonpoint Queens High School and College Success division and the CAPE Mental Health Clinic, we are now offering teletherapy for community members ages 12-18!

Recently, the NYC Civic Engagement Commission and CORO New York Leadership Center conducted outreach and youth needs assessments for a youth-centered participatory democracy initiative. The number one issue submitted focused on youth mental health.

At Commonpoint Queens we have a long history of meeting the mental health needs of our Queens community. With this in mind, we are excited to announce that we have opened up a new Adolescent Mental Health Clinic at our Sam Field Center (58-20 Little Neck Parkway, Little Neck, NY) and we are accepting new clients from ages 12-18.

Without intervention, we know this pandemic will have a long lasting emotional impact on our future leaders. Young people need to feel empowered to face issues head on with the support of licensed, trained clinicians who will provide the resources and tools necessary to cope.  Our team supports and identifies symptoms of significant anxiety, feelings of depression and isolation and significant grief work surrounding familial loss.

Services include but are not limited to:

  • Individual Psychotherapy
  • Group Psychotherapy
  • Support Groups for Parents
  • Family Therapy

Please note: A parent/guardian needs to be involved in the treatment process, as we are not able to provide treatment to a child without their legal parent or guardian being aware that we are working with them.  We accept most insurances, and will not turn anyone away due to inability to pay.

At this time, we are not able to serve individuals with eating disorders or substance abuse problems, but we will gladly refer any clients in need of those services to partner organizations that can provide assistance.

If you are interested in more information, or would like to refer a patient to us, please fill out our form below and we will contact you shortly, or call us at 718-224-0566.

Special thanks to the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation for their financial support of this important initiative.
