Kathy G. Alonge-Coons LCSWR Commissioner                                Kathleen M. Jimino County Executive       

For over forty years, Rensselaer County Department of Mental Health has maintained responsibility and a commitment to the mental hygiene needs of our residents by monitoring and continuously improving the system of behavioral healthcare services delivered in the county. As a Unified Services county, we work collaboratively with a consortium of agencies that serve individuals enrolled in programs funded by the NYS Offices of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities and the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse. Committed to excellence, we provide comprehensive mental hygiene services that promote individual growth, interpersonal functioning, rehabilitation and recovery.

This website is designed to promote public understanding of behavioral healthcare and to provide information and resources related to our Department. We also offer links to our partnering agencies in delivering quality behavioral healthcare services.  We sincerely hope that you find it valuable.
