Counseling Services

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, MaineStay Youth & Family Services now offers telehealth services exclusively and continues to provide affordable counseling and psychiatric services via video or phone sessions. MaineStay has also changed the delivery method of some of our programs such as mentoring, art, and parenting classes into a virtual format. We are committed to doing everything we can to help our residents successfully navigate this period of crisis.
