Our History

Bleuler Psychotherapy Center, Inc., is located in Forest Hills, and it is the oldest freestanding not-for-profit outpatient facility in Queens and Long Island. The center was founded in 1949 by Dr. Gerard Chrzanowski, a psychiatrist who had been a student of Dr. Eugene Bleuler (pronounced Bloy-ler) who in turn, had studied serious mental illness and had introduced to psychiatry the term "Schizophrenia."  The New York State Office of Mental Health licenses the clinic as a free-standing, outpatient Mental Health Clinic.


The clinic staff includes five psychiatrists and over 70 part-time and full-time licensed psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals. Spanish, Russian, Farsi, Hebrew, French, Italian and other specific language speaking therapists are available. Bleuler's therapists are a diverse group. The common qualities among them are empathy, understanding and professionalism.
