BronxWorks doors are open as we meet the profound needs of our community during the COVID-19 crisis.


Geriatric Mental Health Initiative

Through our Geriatric Mental Health Initiative (formerly known as the Senior Mental Health Program), a BronxWorks social worker provides group and individual counseling as well as mental health screenings at all our senior centers, Naturally Occurring Retirement Centers (NORCs)), and Social Club. Group counseling sessions cover topics like depression, isolation, anxiety, stress release, and bereavement.
