Expert talks about mental health in New York City

The City continues to deal with mental health challenges in all five boroughs.

According to the Mayor’s Office of Community Mental Health, one in five New Yorkers experiences mental illness within a year.

In addition to the new Mayor’s Office of Community Mental Health, the city is also using the Clubhouse model, which emphasizes social reintegration and access to employment, housing and skills development.

Ken Zimmerman, CEO of Fountain House, a national mental health nonprofit organization behind the Clubhouse model, joined Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” on Wednesday to discuss it further.
