The Mayor’s Office of ThriveNYC promotes mental health for all New Yorkers

ThriveNYC is an unprecedented commitment across 12 City agencies to implement over 30 innovative programs that reach hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers every year. We reach people with the highest need – those with serious mental illness, those harmed by trauma, and those living in historically underserved neighborhoods. And we eliminate barriers to care for all New Yorkers by providing free services in over 200 languages, regardless of insurance or immigration status.  

We are working toward a New York City where more New Yorkers get the mental health treatment they need and fewer mental health needs become crises.

Launched by First Lady Chirlane McCray and Mayor Bill de Blasio in 2015, ThriveNYC tackles critical gaps in our mental healthcare system and activates every part of City government to promote mental health. In 2019, this work was consolidated in the new Mayor’s Office of ThriveNYC, which is focused on strong programmatic oversight, coordinated evaluation and research, and strategic community, government and partner engagement. 

Our programs advance four goals: 

o   Promote mental health for the youngest New Yorkers

o   Reach people with the highest need

o   Strengthen crisis prevention and response

o   Eliminate barriers to care

In all parts of our work, ThriveNYC prioritizes equity and inclusion and builds the evidence base for innovative approaches.
