Mayor’s Office of Community Mental Health
The Mayor’s Office of Community Mental Health promotes mental health for all New Yorkers. 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.
To get there, we oversee strategies to close critical gaps in mental healthcare so every New Yorker, in every neighborhood, has the support they need. Building on the strong foundation of ThriveNYC, we partner with 13 city agencies and nearly 200 non-profit organizations to implement 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.
Launched by First Lady Chirlane McCray and Mayor Bill de Blasio in 2015, ThriveNYC brought more mental health support — delivered in more places and in mores — to New York City. Established in 2021, the Mayor’s Office of Community Mental Health continues this work by tackling critical gaps in our mental healthcare system and activating every part of City government to promote mental health
