Coping with Unique Experiences (CUE) is a clinical program at Mount Sinai, with sites both at the main campus on the East Side and at St. Luke’s on the West Side. At CUE, we work with teenagers and young adults who are experiencing changes in their mood and behavior such as unusual thoughts and sensory experiences, social withdrawal, distress, and confused thinking. Patients at our clinic receive state-of-the-art expert evaluation and patient-centered, evidence-based treatment.
Adults (18 and over) please call CUE 5th Avenue on the East Side at 212-241-5947 or
