on Tue, 11/17/2015 - 16:39

For the people MHA serves, a gift is a rare and precious thing. Receiving a gift carries with it many positive and important messages including that someone cares about you, that you are worthy and important.

With help from friends like you, we were able to deliver these messages of caring to over 350 individuals last year. Would you join us for Operation Holiday Joy this year?

How You Can Help:
  * Sponsor an individual or family, and shop from their wish list.
  * Donate a store gift card (Target, Kmart, Stop and Shop, etc).
  * Make a financial contribution and we will shop on your behalf.

Gifts are requested on or before the week of December 7, 2015. To be part of our very special group of gift-givers, please call 914-265-7511 or email

Early Intervention in Psychosis Offers Promise

Just Posted! View The PBS Newshour interview about Treatment of Early Psychosis for a brief yet thorough description of psychosis, its impact on indivdiuals and their families, and how Early Intervention practices improve lives.

Huffington Post Highline highlights a radically different approach to treating individuals in the early stages of psychosis – an approach embodied by MHA’s OnTrackNY   service. The multi-faceted treatment includes tailored therapy and coping techniques to help individuals remain in school or employed—interventions important to  stop the downward spiral historically associated with schizophrenia, low yet effective doses of medication. A philosophy of  “shared decision-making,” individuals working with professionals to guide their care, is at the core of the service.
