Mental health and psychology are growing career fields and the city has a number of university programs that train individuals in these helping professions.  During the day, visitors to NYC like to see the trading floor of the world renown stock exchange; this is available during select times and viewed in a quiet observation room overlooking this famous floor. 

Of course no one will ever forget the trauma of 9/11 and how individuals and families rose up to the immense challenge against one of the most devastating events, and were able to find life again. This is a strong testimony to the spirit and strength of the people of New York. Counseling in NYC administers expert therapy from licensed and trained therapists whose goal is to help you through difficult situations in your life.

Mental Health in New York City

According to the New York State Office of Mental Health, 1 in 5 New Yorkers has symptoms of a mental disorder and 1 in 10 adults and children experience mental health challenges that affect their ability to function effectively in work and/or school.2 These statistics paired with New York City's rising homeless population could mean trouble for America's largest city, but thankfully there are several resources available throughout the city to those struggling with poor mental health.

In addition to its countless attractions, New York City has a wide array of mental health services including LifeNet, a free and confidential crisis prevention hotline for those seeking help with mental health and/or substance abuse. LifeNet is accessible 24/7 and may be reached directly by calling 1-800-LIFENET.3

New York University's Langone Medical Center proudly offers a directory of free and low-cost mental health service for New York City residents of all ages and backgrounds. According to the site, there are eight free mental health clinics throughout the city including clinics at Mt. Sinai and Columbia University.4 To learn more about these clinics and others like them, visit Langone Medical Center's online at www.nycfreeclinic.med.nyu.edu or by calling 212-206-5200.
