Mental Health and Preventive Services

four kidsJCCA's Mental Health and Preventive Services stabilize and strengthen poor families in crisis when their children are coping with mental illness and stress. With our help, these families can resolve immediate problems and keep children safely at home. Our programs offer rapid assessment, crisis intervention, and treatment. JCCA works with the children’s schools, family courts, and other community services. These programs serve several Brooklyn neighborhoods, and the Highbridge and Mott Haven neighborhoods of the South Bronx.

MENTAL HEALTH & PREVENTIVE SERVICES: Jennifer

At 17, Jennifer has had to deal with a lot of family problems that she’s not eager to remember or talk about. In treatment at JCCA’s Avenue H office, she was one of the first members of Teen Council. Talking about her experiences, her face lights up as she puts into words how the experience has changed her. Read more>

At JCCA, we know that the mental health issues of the vulnerable and poor children we serve represent a huge unmet need. Mental health is a key component in a child’s healthy development. Children need to be healthy in order to learn, grow, and lead productive lives. There are effective treatments, services, and supports that can help children and youth with mental health problems and those at risk to thrive and live successfully. However, most poor children and youth in need of mental health services do not obtain them. Twenty-one percent of low-income children and youth ages 6 through 17 have mental health problems, but more than seventy-five percent of them do not receive the mental health services they require.

JCCA offers a variety of programs aimed at assisting families whose children have mental health issues.. The aim is to keep the children in the community with their families, while providing them with the help they need. Programs are divided into four departments:
