NEW YORK—The de Blasio Administration today released a white paper detailing the size and scope of the mental health crisis in New York City. In the coming weeks, the administration will release ThriveNYC – a comprehensive roadmap for promoting mental health in New York City. The first step towards building a mental health system that can support the well-being of the thousands of New Yorkers dealing with mental health challenges is a full understanding of the depth of the problem. The result of months of brand new research commissioned by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, this white paper details - with never before released data - the scale of the problem, and its effects on all of us as New Yorkers.
