What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

People everywhere need comprehensive services and advocacy that focus on mental health as well as overall health and wellness. In order to address this pressing need for the residents of Suffolk County, NY, we aim to: 1) share and strengthen resources that are grounded in evidence-based research and that serve people of all cultures and ethnicities; 2) help those facing chronic and serious mental illness and psychiatric disabilities as well as those experiencing mental health issues for the first time; 3) focus on serving the special needs of military Veterans, especially those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Mental Health Helpline

Finding the right help can often feel overwhelming. Our goal is to make this process as simple as possible through easy access to our telephone Helpline.

Population(s) Served

People can and do recover from the impact of psychiatric impairments, disability, and trauma. Our two Centers for Recovery and Wellness, in Ronkonkoma, NY and Riverhead, NY, use individual and classroom-based modalities that encourage participants to identify their recovery goals along with the barriers that have obstructed their paths to happy, healthy and productive lives.

Population(s) Served

Utilizing a whole health approach, we provide care coordination and care management for people with physical and behavioral health needs through person-centered coordination of mental health, substance abuse, physical healthcare services and social services.
