Community Health Assistance

BronxWorks is invested both in the physical and mental health of our Bronx neighbors. We have multiple programs designed to connect our neighbors with accessible community health services across New York City.

If you are in immediate danger or need medical attention, call 911.

If you are in crisis, call the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988.

Community Support Network

BronxWorks is a proud member of the Community Support Network (CSN),  a pre-crisis, preventative initiative with support from the NYC Department of Mental Health & Hygiene. We are providing support in ZIP codes 10453, 10457, and 10458.

Our Community Engagement Specialists will engage in conversations with individuals and groups in the community at both the street level and the organization level, ensuring that residents know about new resources that they or their family may be eligible for. We also connect residents to community-based services to address unmet behavioral health, physical health, and social needs before they become acute or need urgent care via New York’s emergency and crisis response system.

Communities Thrive

BronxWorks is a proud partner of the Communities Thrive project, a collaboration between the Mayor’s Office of Community Mental Health and New York City Health + Hospitals.

Communities Thrive is an innovative initiative to address mental health needs of underserved New Yorkers. The project aims to support communities of color in shaping how and where mental health support is delivered and in exploring new ways to address longstanding barriers to care. Our Bronx neighbors of color are at greater risk of mental health needs, yet generally receive less mental health care than White New Yorkers.

Communities Thrive addresses the critical barriers to mental health care we face, including neighborhoods with too few mental health providers, a shortage of providers trained to provide culturally or linguistically competent care, stigma, and lack of medical insurance. In partnership with organizations serving Latinx New Yorkers, Communities Thrive expands access to mental health care through community partnerships and connection to behavioral health services, including tele-health, provided by NYC Health + Hospitals.
