Contact OMH Field Office Staff to Check in onDisaster Impact, Needs; Nov 1 Subway Schedule

We’re working with OMH to connect community mental health providers in the distressed areas (NYC, Long Island, Hudson River Regions) with OMH Field Office staff to let them know how you’re doing and what you and the people you serve need most.

 

OMH is particularly interested in how displaced individuals are dealing with housing crises, and how housing providers are faring at keeping their operations open in the face of floods, power failures and staff who are away tending to their own crises.

 

While many OMHers in these regions may not have cell or email service, you should be able to reach them via landlines at:

  • New York City Field Office: (212) 330-1650
  • Hudson River Field Office: (845) 454-8229
  • Long Island Field Office: (631) 761-2508

 

If you can’t reach them, you can contact me at harveyr@nyaprs.org and we’ll do what we can to help as well.

 

The Governor’s home page offers a lot of timely resources at http://www.governor.ny.gov/.
