“We Hear You (Breathe)” and “We Are Here 4 You” are the heartfelt messages on display in the windows of our Behavioral Health & Clinical Services West 63rd street location. Posted near the entrance are updates about reopening for in-person services, additional resources available during the COVID-19 impact, along with inspirational information regarding the fight for racial equality.

The isolation required during social distancing and the added stress of social unrest can escalate existing mental health challenges and trigger new cases. Our well-trained Behavioral Health Outpatient Clinic and Mobile Crisis Response teams are providing emergency mental health services to deflect situations where people may be homicidal or suicidal, many of whom represent the youth population.
