Learn more about how Saratoga Center for the Family is working to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, clients, and the community


Saratoga Center for the Family is able to offer COVID-19 specific support services due to a grant provided by The William Gundry Broughton Foundation.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an increased need for mental wellness supports specifically related to the COVID-19 health crisis. Therefore, Saratoga Center for the Family is offering both 1-on-1 mental health counseling as well as group counseling supports to those affected by the COVID-19 health crisis. Some of the common issues covered by this program include:

  • Grief and Loss
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Caregiver burnout
  • Long-term health and wellness effects
  • Disordered eating
  • Isolation and lonliness

If you are interested in 1-on-1 services for COVID Specific Issues, please contact our Intake Coordinator at 518-587-8008


This is a weekly support group aimed at providing social support for those feeling alone, isolated, or just in need of some connection during this difficult time. This group will provide a safe space for processing thoughts and emotions brought on by our current public health crisis. The group will emphasize social support, interpersonal connections, fostering resilience, and discussion around how you are maintaining emotional wellbeing at this time. Although the facilitator will provide some psychoeducation and coping skill suggestions, this group is not a therapy group. This group is a good fit for people who are feeling isolated as a result of the current health crisis, do not have sufficient support from their current social circle,  who would like to make meaningful connections with others in a safe and compassionate space, and who would like to build inner resilience through relations with other. Members will have the opportunity to share their experiences, fears, and support each other through the crisis.
