Connections to Care: Mental Health Integration in Community-Based Organizations

Connections to Care: Mental Health Integration in Community-Based Organizations

City implementation partner: Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity

Connections to Care (C2C) integrates mental health support into the work of community-based organizations (CBOs) serving at-risk and low-income communities across the City. Through C2C, CBOs work with mental health providers who train and coach staff to screen their clients for mental health needs, offer direct support when appropriate, and link to local health providers for further care if needed. This program is operated in partnership with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, with additional funding through the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.
