COVID-19 INFORMATION

The Wright Institute Clinical Services remains committed to supporting the emotional wellbeing and resilience of our surrounding community. In response to the global coronavirus crisis and the government directive to shelter in place, our clinical services transitioned to offering telehealth psychotherapy via phone or video sessions. Until further notice, Wright Institute Clinical Services will provide mental health services by telephone or video sessions through a secure telehealth platform. Please call one of our clinics directly for more information about ongoing psychotherapy. Currently, all Psychological Assessment through our clinic is suspended until further notice. We will update this site as the situation changes.

We wish you wellness and hope.
