New mental health clinic for young people opens in Northtowns

Gateway Longview has opened a Northtown Behavioral Health Clinic in Williamsville to provide comprehensive mental and behavioral health services for children, teens, young adults and their families.

Dwyer Cottage, at 6330 Main St., was renovated this summer to support the growing need for such services.

“We’ve spent years looking for cost-effective space to support our growing client base in the Northtowns and those seen primarily in our Niagara County school-based sites,” Kristy D’Angelo, vice president of behavioral health service, said in a news release. “Expanding within this facility, which is already an integral piece of our Main Street Campus, not only allows for that need to be met, but also provides the opportunity to build upon transitional services to help youth successfully reengage with their community when they move on from residential treatment services.”

The site houses five offices for licensed mental health clinicians. Clinical services are offered to those age 3 to 21. The building most recently was a residence for teenage girls assigned to Erie County’s transitional non-secure detention program, a service that Gateway Longview jointly runs with New Directions Youth and Family Services.
