Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social services, arts, and health care programs.
Mental Health Services
Hope, growth, change, recovery — these are the guiding tenets of the Settlement’s Community Consultation Center (CCC). The CCC opened in 1946 as one of the first public clinics to provide psychiatric care to the community. Throughout its history, the clinic has had an enduring commitment to meet the changing needs of the community.
A New York State-certified mental health facility and approved primary healthcare facility, the CCC delivers outpatient mental health services, PROS express program, crisis services, HIV family mental health services, Asian bi-cultural services, vocational rehabilitation, housing, primary healthcare, parent education and support and job training opportunities, as well as legal and financial services and screenings for entitlement benefits and Food Stamp enrollment.
The multi-ethnic staff of professionals — including board-certified doctors, social workers and others — provides services in English, Spanish, two dialects of Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Italian, Sicilian, German, Polish, Farsi, Dari, and Pashtu. The belief in the emotional recovery for all clients is the underpinning for all clinical services. This conviction generates hope and a partnership with consumers for recovery.
There are a number of mental heath services for the Henry Street community:
