Expanding Access to Mental Healthcare in NYC
Washington, August 11, 2023
New Yorkers understand the devastating impact that untreated mental illnesses can have on our neighbors. I've always believed everyone deserves high quality, accessible, and affordable healthcare, including those seeking care for serious mental illnesses.
Following this announcement, I toured Fountain House, a non-profit in Hell's Kitchen focused on building community among those most impacted by mental illnesses.
We must end the devastating cycle that far too many with mental illnesses fall into when they are denied care: from our streets, to our shelters and jails. Expanding access to community-based services that connect our neighbors with housing, educational and work opportunities, and more will help break this cycle and allow those struggling to build a better life.
