Psychiatry at the Brooklyn Free Clinic offers psychiatric evaluations by volunteer residents from SUNY Downstate Medical Center. We operate at the same location as the primary care section of the Brooklyn Free Clinic on an appointment-only basis. There are no walk-ins for psychiatric evaluations.
We work to connect all patients to long-term follow-up care when it is needed. Patients may make appointments directly with psychiatry. You may also be referred from a primary care appointment.
We commonly see people struggling with depression and anxiety, but we are also happy to see people who just want to talk. People with other psychiatric problems are also welcome. Translation services are available, if English is not your first language.
If you feel in immediate danger of hurting yourself or anyone else, please call 911 or go to the closest emergency room. You may also go to the specialized and comprehensive psychiatric emergency room at Kings Country Hospital. You can do that and still make an appointment with us. We are here for you!
