For more than 50 years, our work with people impacted by behavioral health challenges has been consistent, responsive and expansive. Our multi-faceted approach allows us to serve an increasing number of children, families and adults every year. Last year we were able to transform the lives of more than one million Americans. As a result, we have been recognized as a leading provider of innovative mental health services, advocacy and education in New York City and nationwide.
While hundreds of thousands of people in emotional crisis call one of our 15 local, state or national hotlines we administer, thousands more are helped through our advocacy for veterans, older adults and others in need of better mental health care. Our Center for Policy, Advocacy and Education is a galvanizing force, successful in putting mental health on legislative agendas at City Hall, in Albany and in Washington, D.C.
Whether it is in times of personal crisis or widespread disaster, we use leading edge technological solutions to help people access the care they need anytime, anywhere and in any way that works for them.
As the health and behavioral health fields undergo radical transformations, we will remain at the forefront, willing and able to rise to any challenges we may face. Our commitment to transforming lives and strengthening communities is the lifeblood of our organization.
