NYC DOHMH January Consumer Leadership Meeting

NYAPRS Note: See below for an invitation from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to an open community forum. These forums are a way to bridge policy and practice across the boroughs, and are a valuable model for ongoing communication between stakeholders. Join DOHMH to share your ideas and hear an update about the Parachute NYC crisis respite campus in Manhattan. The Parachute model is now providing crisis respite in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx; staff and policy makers are seeking feedback from community members. Learn more about Parachute and crisis respite here.
