This guide is designed to help all employers promote employee mental health during and following the coronavirus outbreak. We urge you
to do your part in reducing the stigma of mental health challenges, building awareness of available mental health resources, and encouraging employees in need.
Many New Yorkers are feeling stressed, anxious, and sad right now. Mental health support – whether that means staying connected to your loved ones, downloading a helpful app, or having a video session with a counselor – can help.
Even before the coronavirus pandemic, there were already profound mental health inequities in New York City. Communities of color experienced a higher incidence of
mental health needs yet were less likely to be connected to care. Five ways in which the pandemic is exacerbating these inequities.
The purpose of this project/guide is to help community-based organizations (CBOs) and mental health providers (MHPs) work together to bring accessible, effective mental health support to community members, when and where they need it.
Celebrating heroes who are ensuring all New Yorkers stay safe and nourished– whether by keeping our buildings and transportation systems clean and operating, teaching our young people remotely, stocking our supermarkets, keeping our communities safe, or delivering needed healthcare, mail, or meals.
