MHA-NYC takes the long view in our commitment to advocacy, through which we anticipate changing mental health trends and work to address unmet needs. We are committed to making the vision of community mental health a reality in New York City and State.
In January, 2003, the Mental Health Associations of New York City and Westchester launched the Center for Policy, Advocacy, and Education. The Center serves as a hub for progressive thinking and action to address changing mental health needs. Today, the Center is run exclusively by MHA-NYC.
Learn more about The Center for Policy, Advocacy and Education and the coalitions we have created and help to lead:
- Geriatric Mental Health Alliance
- Veterans Mental Health Coalition
- National TBI and Emotional Wellness Alliance
- Supporting the Center
"We made a conscious decision to focus on major issues that
would be emerging over the next decade or longer. Rather than
reacting to what had already happened, we wanted to get out in
front of the curve."
