Nearly two years later, local lawmakers and West Seneca Supervisor Sheila Meegan are meeting with patients and families at the Western New York Children's Psychiatric Center to discuss progress and the future of the center.

Most recently, the state agreed to keep the facility open for one year, but that was back in April, leaving families and loved ones still very concerned. 

If their doors close, young patients at the center could end up being moved to the adult psychiatric center on Forest Avenue in Buffalo.

The meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Novemeber 22, at the West Seneca location.
