About Bronx Psychiatric Center

Bronx Psychiatric Center provides:

Inpatient hospitalization takes place at the main campus. Our outpatient site is in the borough of the Bronx.

We specialize in treatment of people with severe and complex mental illness who need continuity of care, not episodic care. We operate as part of an integrated delivery network that is planned and supervised by County Departments of Mental Health.

We work to promote empowerment, advocacy, and choice by people receiving care and their families. We are partners with consumers in fighting the stigma and misconceptions about mental illness.

Not only do we meet and exceed existing standards in our field; we contribute to establishing new ones. We engage in continuous learning, problem solving, and evidence-based treatment approaches.

Areas Served

Bronx County and the Greater NYC Region

In partnership with recipients, their families and the community, Bronx Psychiatric Center will provide an integrated system of treatment to facilitate hope and recovery of individuals with serious mental illness. We will offer a choice evidence-based programs which respect the dignity, cultural differences and self-worth of those we serve. We will offer them in the safest environment possible.

Training Opportunities

Bronx Psychiatric Center offers a Psychology Doctoral Internship through APPIC.

The goal of this program is to narrow the gap between theory, research, and practice by providing clinical services to those with severe mental illness. We want to expose our interns to the full range of responsibilities. This includes collaboration with team members of other disciplines and under the supervision of a psychologist.
