New Yorkers have a new resource to help them access mental health and addiction care when they are facing barriers, such as insurance denials, lack of providers, specialized healthcare needs, and more. CHAMP (Community Health Access to Addiction and Mental Healthcare Project) is the Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Ombudsman Program, a free, confidential program available to all New Yorkers. CHAMP is funded by the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abused Services (OASAS) and the Office of Mental Health (OMH). OASAS and OMH have partnered with community organizations around the state to provide a Helpline and 1:1 community-based support, as well as legal assistance with handling insurance denials and other complex concerns.
