Asian Bi-Cultural Mental Health Services
The Community Consultation Center (CCC) is open at 40 Montgomery Street. Please call 212.233.5032 for more information.
Recognizing the increasing unmet mental health needs of the expanding immigrant Asian population, the Community Consultation Center (CCC) clinic formalized in 1997 an Asian Bi-Cultural unit. This unit is active in both the Out-Patient Mental Health Clinic and the Personalized Recovery Oriented Services (PROS).
Services address the stigma related to mental illness within Asian families; social and economic stressors; and family conflicts in values and role expectations that often arise between the older and younger generations in a new culture. This unit utilizes a unique model consisting of a team of East-West bi-cultural staff, which itself reflects differing value systems and approaches for problem resolution.
