All visits and services are strictly confidential. CPEP mental health services are located next to the Emergency Department at UHS Binghamton General Hospital. There is a charge for CPEP services. These Binghamton psychiatric services are covered by most major insurance plans.
We can come to you
If you find yourself in an emotional crisis, but are unable to arrange transportation to CPEP, or if your concerns do not require acute care, our mobile team may be able to help. This team can provide mental health evaluation/ assessment, intervention services, interim service visits and referrals to appropriate community resources. Permission of the individual is necessary to provide mobile services to adults, and parent/guardian permission is needed for children and adolescents. The mobile service can occur in someone’s home, at a community agency, or in schools within Broome County.
Help for children and youths
Children growing up in today’s changing society face social, school and family pressures of increasing complexity. Many children and teenagers have trouble coping with these pressures. Some become angry and rebellious, while others withdraw. Don’t let the problem get out of control. Get help; the earlier the better. CPEP has child and youth specialists who can help.
The CPEP team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Help is a phone call away.
