Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We continue to promote the health, quality of life and independent community living for special needs populations and prevent cycles of repeated hospitalizations, homelessness and incarceration by providing access to resources, treatment and support.

ACMH provides outreach and engagement, care coordination, peer support, supportive housing and rehabilitation to adults with serious mental illness and other vulnerable New Yorkers in need, and promotes access to treatment, employment, and other supports and services according to an individualized plan that addresses a client's strengths, needs, goals, and choices.

ACMH has operated housing programs with a rehabilitative focus which are licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) since 1979. These programs, transitional by nature, provide the support and rehabilitative services which many adults with serious mental illness require in order to live successfully in the community in the least restrictive environment while acquiring skills for greater independence. Since 1993, ACMH has also operated permanent supportive housing programs which provide both the financial subsidy and case management support that many persons with serious mental illness need to access and maintain housing in the community. These projects, providing more than 1,000 beds include six capital projects, with another three currently in construction and slated for completion in 2019 - 2020.

Beginning in 2002, ACMH began targeting case management services to the community at large, independent of ACMH operated housing.
In 2013, ACMH began providing care management for NYS Medicaid Health Homes, as well as to non-Medicaid recipients under a contract with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH).

Since 2015, ACMH has operated Short-Term Crisis Respite & Step-Down Transitional Housing for individuals experiencing a psychiatric crisis or transitioning from a hospital stay. Respite is staffed by a licensed mental health counselor and peers with lived experience as consumers of mental health services.

Since 2016, ACMH has provided Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) on behalf of Medicaid Managed Care Organizations.

We have guided people in managing chronic mental health, substance use, and other medical conditions since 1973. Under contract with Medicaid Health Homes, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the New York State Office of Mental Health, and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, we provide housing, outreach, engagement and care coordination, serving over 1,500 people daily.
