Online Petition to Save Binghamton Mental Health Programs

New York State Senator Thomas Libous of Binghamton is collecting signatures online in an effort to keep all the mental health services at the Greater Binghamton Health Center.

Earlier this month, the New York State Department of Mental Health Services announced a planned consolidation of services that would turn the Binghamton facility into an outpatient hub but shut down the youth and adolescent in-patient mental health facility. Those patients would be sent to Utica.  Hundreds of jobs at the Binghamton and Elmira facilities are expected to be transferred to other locations under the plan.

Libous says in one week, over 1,200 signatures were collected at his website in support of preserving programs at the Binghamton facility.

The petition is available at www.TomLibous.com.
