Self-care tips

During times of isolation, mental health experts recommend the following:

  • Have a routine that you practice every day such as waking up at the same time and getting dressed to begin your day.
  • Take care of your body. Exercise regularly. Eat well. Get a good night’s sleep.
  • Make sure you are not isolated socially. Because of these social distancing guidelines, a lot of people feel like they are alone. It is really important to maintain social connections. Check in on friends and family regularly.
  • Focus on the things you can control in your life
  • Set limits on the amount of newsworthy information you consume each day. Start by limiting how many times you seek out the news and identify the specific news outlets you retrieve information from.
  • Schedule some daily tasks or projects to mix up the day-to-day routine. For example, create a porch garden that you can take care of and watch grow.

About the Program

Our Mental Health Clinic provides evaluation, individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and medication treatment for individuals struggling with Mental Health issues. The clinic is staffed by Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, and Board Certified Psychiatrists.

We have been providing services since 2005, and are centrally located in downtown Rochester. A part of the broad range of CFC services and programs, our staff can provide easy referrals to housing, employment, financial assistance and more.

Our Behavioral Health network continues to provide critical services for people who, in many cases, would have nowhere else to turn.

  • 87% of the clients of our Mental Health Clinic and 84% of our Restart Outpatient clients have incomes below $15,000.
  • Our expanded walk-in hours and the availability of Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) are two of our most needed and relevant services.
  • Our clinics are located next door to the Rochester Transit Center, making access relatively easy.
  • 11% of our Mental Health Clinic clients are children. The Children's Mental Health program connected with 3 charter schools to provide psychotherapy on site at least one day each week.
