Check out Resource Guide for Mental Health & Wellness in the Rockaways to learn about services in our community and to reduce social stigma among people in need.
Acknowledging that there is a high rate of unmet mental health needs in the Rockaways, RISE organized a community stakeholder group to regularly convene and pool local resources and information about existing mental health resources, to build awareness and local support.
Resource Guide for Mental Health & Wellness in the Rockaways was created to make the process of asking for help and receiving treatment in the community a little bit easier. The guide includes a service directory for outpatient services, immediate assistance services, along with tip sheets and educational resources.

In light of the recent pandemic, we expect mental health to be of even greater need in the coming months. Please check Thrive NYC for its online webinars, which may be helpful.
