The cost of untreated mental illness in New Jersey is $4 billion annually, according to the NJ Association of Mental Health Agencies.  The financial toll is found in non-psychiatric medical care, prisons, unemployment, substance abuse, shelters, lack of productivity, school interventions, and broken families. GenPsych PC has tackled this urgent issue head on and hosted a free open house to celebrate the opening of their new facility in Livingston, NJ on February 20, 2013.

Over a dozen therapists, nurses, health care providers, and Livingston’s current Mayor, Rudy Fernandez attended and enjoyed a tour of the new facility as well as an energetic presentation given by several of the GenPsych staff members that emphasized GenPsych’s mission to provide the best quality of patient care.  During her presentation, Carly DeCotiis, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Coordinator, explained how DBT is an effective treatment for individuals who have trouble with self-destructive behaviors and trouble regulating their emotions.  GenPsych Livingston offers both an intensive outpatient (IOP) and partial care DBT program in order to provide comprehensive help for individuals for all level of care needs.  In addition to DBT, GenPsych also runs a highly effective partial care and IOP Eating Disorders Program (called The “HEAL” Program) that teaches clients healthy eating habits, coping skills, and mood stabilization techniques.
