Killexams : $1Bmental health plan aims to boost psychiatric beds

Since 2014, the number of inpatient psychiatric beds across New York has declined by 20%.That, coupled with a lack of services to which patients can be safely discharged, has resulted in high occupancy rates at inpatient facilities as well as some people falling through the cracks of a broken system, according to Gov. Kathy Hochul's office.

"Right now, nearly 3,200 New Yorkers struggling with severe mental illness or addiction are living on the street and subways," Hochul said during her State of the State address earlier this month. "At the same time, we have insufficient levels of inpatient psychiatric beds and outpatient services."

It's why Hochul announced plans for the state to spend more than $1 billion to try to fix the state's continuum of mental health care.

Amajor part of that plan: adding 1,000 inpatient psychiatric beds across the state, which will involve bringing 850 psychiatric beds in hospitals back online as well as funding 150 new beds in state facilities.

People are also reading…

"This is more than half of the beds we have lost since 2014, and they will serve more than 10,000 New Yorkers each year," Hochul said. "These actions are overdue."

But how did we get to this point?

Hearing Hochul's plan took me back to mid-2013, to my first big story as a business reporter at the Press & Sun-Bulletin, the newspaper in Binghamton.

The state had a different idea back then: It was implementing a new Regional Centers of Excellence Plan that would consolidate New York's 24 state psychiatric hospitals into 15 regional centers over three years, expand outpatient services and save about $20 million statewide in the first year.

As originally concocted, the plan would have ended inpatient services at the Greater Binghamton Health Center as early as July 2014.

The human cost of that: Binghamton-area children needing hospitalization would receive treatment in Utica, while adults would have to go to Syracuse. Both trips are an hour-plus from Binghamton.

Mental health experts at the time were concerned about the rapid change, noting that unless all the cost savings were reinvested in outpatient care, there would be collateral damage.

This was all about 20 years after another state plan: The New York State Community Mental Health Reinvestment Act, which was signed into law in December 1993.

The principle behind that 1993 legislation was that the funds saved from the planned downsizing of the state hospital system through closures and patient census reductions would then be reinvested to create more community-based services.

As experts back in 2013 and now told me, that's where the problem lies: The state has always seemed better at getting people out of institutions than building up programs in the community to provide care and support.

Through the efforts of many, including local politicians, the Greater Binghamton Health Center stayed open.

But the decline in inpatient psychiatric beds across the state continued.

In 2014, according to figures from Hochul's office, there were 9,320 inpatient psychiatric beds across New York, which included 6,228 beds in community hospitals and 3,092 in state facilities.

By 2023, the overall inpatient psychiatric bed count had fallen 20% to 7,471, including 4,954 in community hospitals and 2,517 in state facilities. Hochul's plan

As Hochul's office notes in her plan, the inpatient psychiatric beds are needed to provide immediate treatment for the most acute cases of serious mental illness.

To encourage community hospitals to bring beds back online, Hochul last February announced spending of $27.5 million to support higher reimbursement rates for inpatient psychiatric beds.

But 850 beds remain offline. A major reason why, Hochul said, is because the Office of Mental Health doesn't have the teeth to compel hospitals to bring those beds back.

So as part of her plan, Hochul plans to propose legislation to allow the Office of Mental Health to fine hospitals – up to $2,000 per violation, per day – for not complying with the terms of their operating certificates. "This is the level of authority necessary to ensure that 850 inpatient psychiatric beds are brought online at long last," reads the 2023 State of the State Book.

The governor's plan also calls for opening 150 new adult beds in state run psychiatric hospitals, with 100 of those beds planned in New York City and 50 of them outside of the city.

"This will build on the 50 new beds that the governor announced in November and constitutes the largest expansion of state inpatient capacity in decades," according to the State of the State book.

Killexams : Creative arts therapists can help solve NY's mental health crisis, if Gov. Hochul will let us

Josh Millrod, licensed creative arts therapist, reporting for duty — along with roughly 2,000 colleagues also ready and able to do their part in solving New York’s mental health crisis. That is, if you’ll have us, Gov. Hochul.

In this year’s State of the State address, Gov. Kathy Hochul addressed how dire things have gotten in New York. We face unprecedented rates of anxiety, depression and trauma, worsening clinician shortages, and an affordability crisis driven by insurance companies picking and choosing what services they will cover and which clinicians can provide them.

Meanwhile, on Dec. 30, Hochul signed a landmark bill to expand mental health coverage but only after excluding over 2,000 licensed psychotherapists.

This vital piece of legislation, years in the making, requires insurance companies to cover outpatient services provided by licensed mental health practitioners — including mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychoanalysts, and, if she had not removed us from its provisions, creative arts therapists. Creative arts therapists would have represented more than 14% of this expansion until we were axed in the wee hours of 2023.

Unfortunately, this is just another example of creative arts therapists being left out of Albany’s efforts to increase access and affordability by expanding who can provide the diagnoses that patients need to get services and what licenses are covered by Medicaid.

Licensed creative arts therapists are psychotherapists who integrate music, art, dance and movement, drama, and poetry into their clinical work. We undergo rigorous training in both our creative modality and verbal psychotherapy. To qualify for my license, I earned a master’s degree at NYU including a yearlong internship at Bellevue Hospital working with some of New York’s neediest, obtained national board certification as a music therapist, and completed 1,500 hours of supervised clinical work on Rikers Island, where I developed a trauma-informed hip-hop therapy program for adolescent detainees. In the last six years, I’ve taken over 125 hours of postgraduate psychotherapy training to maintain my license. Still, Albany won't mandate that insurance companies cover my services or allow me to provide diagnoses for patients who need them to access care.

At the same time Hochul touts Albany’s renewed commitment to tackling our mental health crisis, she unnecessarily limited the number of clinicians available to New Yorkers. Sadly, the clinicians she excluded are often the ones best-suited to serving patients averse or unresponsive to other forms of therapy. This last-minute exclusion means that my patients remain at the whims of their insurance companies. If they change jobs, switch plans, or their current insurer shifts rules, they risk losing their mental health care.

I’ve seen firsthand how creative arts therapy can change lives. At Rikers Island, I helped adolescent detainees produce hundreds of songs telling the stories of their pain, trauma, resilience, and hope. These weren't music lessons; they were trauma therapy sessions that used music as a safe container for the overwhelming pain and suffering that these young men held in their minds and bodies. Now, in my private practice, many clients come to me because other therapies haven’t worked or because their traumatic pasts make it hard to talk without getting overwhelmed.

I know little is simple in Albany, but this is straightforward. Extending creative arts therapists the same mandates and privileges granted to our fellow mental health practitioners would make 2,000 additional qualified clinicians available to New Yorkers in need.

We’re ready when you are, Governor.

This guest essay reflects the views of Josh Millrod, a licensed creative arts therapist and board-certified music therapist in private practice on Long Island.

Killexams : Top 4 Apps to Support Your Mental Health


  • Recommends daily meditations
  • Offers mindfulness courses, focus music, and mindful movement videos
  • Offers a free seven-day trial
  • Teachers and teens get free access


  • Many videos are geared toward beginners, which may not be the best fit for more experienced meditators
  • Some Google Play reviews mention that the app interface can be confusing

According to research published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, there is moderate evidence to support the effect of meditation and mindfulness programs on reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, and pain. Headspace has a bank of more than 500 meditations, including three-minute “Mini” meditations, walking meditations, and advanced meditations. Headspace is available on the App Store and Google Play.

Every day, the Headspace app will curate a list of meditations and mindful activities for you, including a “sleepcast” to help you end your day. A sleepcast is a 45- to 55-minute audio segment you can listen to before bed that starts with a meditation or breathing exercise to help you wind down, followed by a bedtime story. The narrator will walk you through different places, such as an aquarium or treehouse, while describing the imagery with soothing speech and with calming music in the background. Headspace remixes each of its 71 sleepcasts every night, so they’ll always be a little different each time you listen.

Headspace also offers a library of narrated mindful movement videos, including ones for yoga, dance, and cardio, to train your body along with your mind. Every video is unique, but the narrators focus on common themes, such as setting intentions for the activity, staying present in your body, focusing on your breath, and practicing self-compassion.

Headspace costs $12.99 per month or $69.99 per year. For a family plan supporting up to six accounts, you will pay $99.99 per year. If you aren’t ready to commit to a subscription, you can sample its services during its free seven-day trial.

Headspace offers free memberships to educators who live in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Teenagers ages 13 to 18 also get free access to Headspace through its partner Peer Health Exchange.

Headspace App Reviews

On the App Store, Headspace gets 4.8 out of 5 stars from more than 922,000 ratings. On Google Play, it gets 4.4 out of 5 stars from more than 292,000 ratings. Reviewers mention that they find the app useful but that it doesn't always work as it should. They also mention difficulty navigating the app interface after latest updates.

Killexams : 10 Best Online Therapy Services Of 2023

Mary Alvord, a psychologist in Maryland who teaches mental health professionals about telehealth, Jay Shore, Ph.D., a psychiatrist and director of telemedicine at the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Henderson offer these pros and cons for online therapy.


Circumvents mental health stigma. “For people whom stigma is a concern, especially if they live in a tight-knit community, parking their car outside a counseling center or therapy office can really violate their privacy,” says Henderson. “But online therapy is really discreet and can protect people’s privacy and confidentiality in ways that in-person [therapy] simply cannot.”

Convenience and safety. If you’re unable to travel safely during bad weather or can’t take time out of your workday to travel to and from a mental health professional’s office, a virtual visit can be a good substitute.

Sense of intimacy. Shore says some patients may prefer their familiar at-home surroundings versus an “artificial clinic environment.” Henderson echoes these sentiments. “In some ways, video is more intimate than being in the same room because we’re in each other’s space,” she says. “You might be in my office, but it’s in my home, so it feels like you’re in my home just as I am in your home. That really bridges a gap, as opposed to being on my turf when you come into my office.”

Similar outcomes. In-person and video visits hold the potential to deliver similar results, according to Shore. Henderson agrees: “We see just as much, if not more, improvement in online therapy settings. Apples to apples, in-person therapy versus telehealth, there’s really no difference between which one is more effective.”

Easier access. For people who live far from the nearest therapist’s office or counseling center, online therapy can provide a readily available alternative.

Little to no wait time. A virtual appointment may be able to begin on time while an in-office appointment may be delayed by paperwork and other bureaucratic hurdles.


Nonverbal communication. A therapist may not pick up on a patient’s nonverbal cues during a virtual appointment. Alvord explains that much of our communication is nonverbal. However, Henderson points out that the proximity of the camera lens during video appointments can provide more visual communication through facial expressions than in an in-person appointment where a greater physical distance exists between the therapist and the client.

Limited effectiveness for some. Certain patients, such as some children or people with autism spectrum disorder, may not respond well to virtual therapy, Alvord notes. Patients with dementia or other cognitive issues also may not do well in virtual sessions without modifications, such as a caregiver being with the patient, Shore says.

Technology. Some patients’ homes may not be equipped with high speed internet service, or the patient may not be comfortable with technology, making virtual therapy difficult or even impossible to carry out.

Insurance coverage. In some cases, your health insurance provider may cover an in-person therapy session but may not cover a virtual session. Such policies are constantly changing, though, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Speak to an agent at your insurance company to confirm what your coverage currently includes.

Killexams : Plans for expanding mental health support, programs in progress in Monroe County

Monroe Community Mental Health Authority Peer Support Specialist Danielle Pettit visits with Jon and Emma Young (who are engaged) and plays patty cake with their 9-month-old daughter, Sophia, Thursday in the library at the Oaks Shelter in Monroe. Pettit, who visits the shelter a couple of times a week, was talking with Jon about his goals, the couple's needs and more.

Plans to address mental health support and programs in Monroe County are underway, according to Lisa Graham, Monroe Community Mental Health Authority chief executive officer.

"We’re addressing it in a couple ways. We began planning to expand our access and our crisis services last year. We applied for and we were approved for grant funding to implement a mobile crisis response unit,” Graham said. “Unfortunately, our agency has also been impacted by the staffing shortages that are impacting the entire country. So we needed to become fully staffed in order to do that. … We are addressing the need for expanded crisis services.”

A mobile crisis response unit is expected to be up and running by July.

Lisa Graham

Due to a lack of mental health support services and resources, the Oaks Homeless Shelter, 1018 E. Second St., will close Feb. 23, said Pastor Heather Boone of Oaks of Righteousness Christian Ministries.

Related:Oaks of Righteousness asking for crisis stabilization unit

Boone is asking for services from MCMHA which include timely, face-to-face appointments; easier access to psychiatric care; and services that are located anywhere in the Orchard East Community where their clients do not have to take four buses to get the care they need.

In November 2023, MCMHA embedded a certified peer support specialist at the Oaks Homeless Shelter as a point person for clients needing help with food, clothing, housing and to begin or maintain mental health treatment.

"In the months of December and January, she's had 64 contacts with 25 unique individuals at the shelter," Graham said.

Graham said MCMHA currently provides crisis services 24-hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

“We have an after-hours team of licensed, master's-level clinicians and we receive notices of crises in a number of ways. We might a get a call from the hospital. We might get a call right to our 24-hour line, and whenever we get those calls we have to respond to those calls and access and provide a determination of a level of care within three hours,” she said.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services requires MCMHA to respond to calls and provide a disposition within three hours for all populations.

“They require a 95% compliance rate and, in three years, we have never once fallen below that compliance rate with any populations,” Graham said. “Another thing we’ve done is increase the number of staff in our access center and at our front desk.”

In an email, Graham addressed offering same-day appointments and services for clients.

“There is no policy that requires MCMHA to offer same-day appointments and transportation. In fact, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services requires that individuals who make a request for service have their first assessment within 14 days,” she said.

Graham provided information about the Performance Improvement Project. The project is focused on reducing the number of individuals who drop out of services between the first call to request services and the first appointment to receive services. MCMHA is implementing two strategies: offering same-day appointments and offering transportation assistance.

“Again, these are not mandates, but interventions we have agreed to implement as part of the project, beginning Jan. 1, 2023,” Graham said in her email. “Due to staffing issues, we are not always able to offer same-day appointments, and the PIHP is aware of this, but that is the goal we are working toward. For fiscal year 2023, we averaged 6.6 calendar days between request for service and initial assessment. We are currently offering transportation assistance.”

PIHP stands for Prepaid Inpatient Health Plan, which is an agency that manages Medicaid services for behavioral health. The PHIP for Monroe County is Community Mental Health Partnership of Southeast Michigan

MCMHA recently completed a gap analysis to determine the needs of the community for accessing services and care. The analysis is a method used to determine whether a organization's requirements or objectives are being met or if steps should be taken to meet them. One of MCMHA’s identified needs was staffing.

Planned for early March, the Monroe Community Mental Health Authority will offer mental health support services at the Benesh Building, 428 S. Monroe St. in downtown Monroe.

With newly hired and trained staffing, plans are being made to make mental health support services available in early March in downtown Monroe at a location known as the Benesh Building, 428 S. Monroe St.

“We have some space there and we know that some people do have a problem getting to locations. Pastor Boone has pointed out it takes four bus transfers to get someone from Oaks to Raisinville Road if they are taking the bus. So this is intended to address that problem that many city residents have in getting to our Raisinville Road location. They would be within walking distance or a quick bus ride to that location.”

In 2023, recruiting and retention was a top priority and MCMHA contracted with two additional psychiatrists. The agency now has six psychiatrists, including two children’s doctors, and one nurse prescriber.

Graham addressed a presentation made in January by Team Wellness Center to MCMHA’s leadership team. The center is requesting to be credentialed for fully integrated outpatient community health services with an emphasis on mental health and substance use disorders, as well as crisis stabilization.

“Team Wellness is one of many providers who would be eligible to submit a proposal should our board of directors vote to contract those services out,” Graham said. “If they did put that on the agenda and vote to contract out additional crisis services, the process would be to put out a request for proposals and those proposals would have to be evaluated and the vendor we chose would go through the credentialing process.”

The process could take up to two to three months to complete.

MCMHA has been meeting with St. Joseph Center of Hope on Stewart Road, a crisis intervention center for people experiencing substance abuse disorders and also mental health crisis.

“Just this week, one of my program directors was able to divert someone who might have been hospitalized to St. Joe’s Center for Hope where they were able to get the crisis stabilization instead of going into the hospital,” she said. “So, we do have community partners that we can strengthen both partnerships with and I’ll be bringing all of those options to our board when we think about the whole crisis continuum that we want to develop.”

On Feb. 22, at the next scheduled MCMHA meeting, Graham will make a presentation overviewing the response crisis services currently in place and discuss expansion plans.

She said it will then be up to the board to decide if any additional crisis services need to be developed in-house or contracted out.

Killexams : Optum Psychiatrists in Orlando, FL
A Psychiatrist in Orlando is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Orlando Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Orlando has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
