Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Telemedicine Appointments

Mount Sinai’s Department of Psychiatry is now offering telemedicine visits via phone or video as a convenient option for receiving mental health care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our outpatient psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and other clinicians treat a broad array of conditions including depression, anxiety, trauma disorders, ADHD, and chronic mental illnesses. We provide confidential psychiatric evaluation and ongoing treatment including medication management and/or therapy for children, adolescents, and adults.

We recognize that this is a very stressful and uneasy time, and we want to make your experience as comfortable and as convenient as possible while practicing physical distancing.
