Audio Description: Watch below as the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene describe their responsibilities and welcome you to the Thrive Learning Center website. The goals of the Thrive Learning Center is to provide people with the tools and resources for caring for their communities.
Our goal is to provide Learners - leaders in their communities - with knowledge and tools so they can help those in need. Despite not being mental health professionals, by virtue of these roles, they are often who people trust and turn to for help or advice. In this way they become "trusted community partners." These community partners can serve as a first point of contact to help others address mental health challenges, promote mental health, and better manage substance misuse.
Thrive Learning Center is designed to build upon the existing skills community partners have and improve how they work with people in their community.
