Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social service, arts, and health care programs.
Most of Henry Street’s mental health programs are exclusively offered onsite. Please contact each program to learn more about virtual and phone 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, the CCC delivers outpatient mental health services, crisis services, Asian bicultural services, vocational rehabilitation, housing support and job training opportunities, as well as legal and financial services and screenings for entitlement benefits and food stamp enrollment.
The multiethnic staff of professionals — including board-certified doctors, social workers, and others — provides all services in English, Mandarin, and Spanish, with as needed translation in Cantonese, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Hindi. 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.
