Mental Health

Mental illness is the leading cause of disability in the world and affects one in every four Americans. Sadly, the rate of mental illness is dramatically higher in the low-income communities we serve. Exposure to high stress and trauma alters brain development, cuts lives short, and traps families in a cycle of poverty. However, the opportunity to intervene and change course has never been more promising. As pioneers of mental health care, we leverage innovative solutions to strengthen mental wellness for the City’s most vulnerable, placing them on track to beat the odds.
