MHA held ribbon-cutting ceremonies in Westchester and Rockland to celebrate the launch of Driving Towards Resilience, an innovative program delivering high-quality, evidence-based care to populations in need who face common barriers to care. Driving Towards Resilience engages individuals throughout the Hudson Valley who experience limited access to behavioral health services due to lack of transportation, telehealth technology, or insurance, as well as those who speak a language other than English.
Our team of Licensed Clinicians, Care Managers, Peer Specialists and Medical Staff provide mental health-related services, screenings and referrals. The mobile units contain spaces for confidential conversations, as well as space for those seeking connection and support in a calm and welcoming environment, and capacity for telehealth connection to additional resources.
We are grateful for the dedication of our Driving Towards Resilience team, the support from our community and all those who joined us at the events, including: Westchester County Government Executive George Latimer; Rockland County Department of Mental Health Commissioner Dr. Susan Hoerter; Westchester County Department of Community Mental Health Deputy Commissioner Joe Glazer; Westchester County Youth Bureau Executive Director Dr. DaMia Harris-Madden; City of White Plains Mayor Thomas M. Roach; staff from State Senator Shelley Mayer and Assemblyman Tom Abinanti's offices; and friends from United Way of Rockland County, The Mental Health Association of Rockland County, Neighbors Link, Release Recovery, NAMI Westchester, Family Services of Westchester, Open Door Family Medical Center, Lexington Center for Recovery, YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester, The LOFT LGBT Community Center, Westchester Library System, Putnam Northern Westchester BOCES, Westchester County Problem Solving Courts Unit, Greenburgh Public Library, Northern Westchester Hospital, Westchester Children's Association, Mutual of America Financial Group, and more!
