Check out the Mental Health Resource Guide for the Rockaways to learn about existing mental health services in the Rockaways and reduce social stigma among people in need.
Acknowledging there is a high rate of unmet mental health needs in the Rockaways, RISE organized a community stakeholder group to regularly convene, pool local resources and information about existing mental health resources to build awareness and local support.
The Mental Health and Wellness Resource Guide for 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 great need in the coming months. Please check the Thrive NYC website for their online videos that may be helpful.
