Human Development Services of Westchester / The Living Room

The Living Room is a program of Human Development Services of Westchester.  It is a walk-in center in Mamaroneck that is a non-hospital setting designed to provide a comfortable, calm and relaxed environment for those who need a safe place to support their mental health. As an alternative to an emergency room guests will be offered both peer and professional support to develop short and long term planning strategies and receive Best Practice services to address their immediate situation. Guests of Living Room Programs report feeling supported and heard.   

A guest will be welcomed into the Living Room Library to speak with staff to ensure that the Living Room has the services available to support the guest.  After a brief screening the Guest will be introduced to a Peer Care Manager, a person who has their own personal experience in receiving mental health services and who is trained to talk with you about your concerns.  Together the Guest and the Peer Care Manager will develop a plan for the day to address immediate needs and future goals. 

Guests will be offered numerous opportunities for support and services during their stay, including spending time in a number of comfortable rooms within the Living Room itself. Guests can choose one of two smaller private Dens equipped with a comfortable recliner, to read or rest, peaceful sound machines, and a Smart TV which offers the ability to access the expanded internet services.  Guests may spend time in the small Library area or the larger Living Room space which includes computer, dining and TV areas.  A galley Kitchen is available for snacks and small meal prep.  Guest may also enjoy the Exercise room and Shower facility.  A variety of calming activities may include use of a piano, music, computer/internet access, books, games, art supplies etc.
