In case you missed it, CCBQ's very own Holly Jaskiewicz of the Behavioral Health Services (BHS) Team recently participated in the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City: Connections to Care Convening at the NYU Kimmel Center for University Life in Manhattan. This initiative was created to better serve low-income communities with mental health services and resources. Additional community-based organizations included representatives from the Mayors Fund, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research at NYU.
