Leading Organization For Vision And Health Offers Unique Programs For Adults And Children With Visual Impairment Having the ability to see is something many of us take for granted. However, for the millions of people who are blind or have vision loss, the psychological impact of being visually impaired can be devastating. Lighthouse Guild, the leading not-for-profit vision and healthcare organization, recognizes the need to provide specialized mental health services to people with visual impairment. Lighthouse Guild, based in New York, is one of the only facilities in the country to offer a Behavioral Health Program with a staff of psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, creative art therapists and other health care professionals trained to address the particular needs of adults and children with vision loss or blindness.
