The Jewish Board Can Help

We are here to help people recover and lead independent, resilient lives.

Family violence. Addiction. Mental illness. These are just some of the challenges that individuals and families face every day. At least one in five adult New Yorkers is likely to experience a mental health disorder in any given year; major depressive disorder is the single greatest source of disability in our city, with less than 40% of those needing health and human services reporting that they receive it. And as the most vulnerable members of our communities, infants, toddlers, children and teens also face a range of behavioral, developmental, and emotional difficulties.

Our work is steeped in clinical expertise and evidence-based practices and uses early and appropriate therapies to prevent or reduce the severity of mental health conditions. Across the five boroughs, The Jewish Board’s counseling centers help people meet their emotional and behavioral health needs with:

  • Assessment and ongoing counseling
  • Medication management
  • Evidence-based treatment

We provide services in English, Spanish, Russian, Hebrew, and many other languages. We accept most major insurances, Medicaid, Medicare, and offer sliding scale fees for the uninsured (download our sliding scale fee application).
