This morning, we officially opened the Healthy Brain Network Center in central Harlem with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Congressman Adriano Espaillat. Congressman Espaillat said in his remarks, “This is a service that is needed by many members and families in the Harlem community, and very often I am sure that families don’t know where to go, or when they need it. This will provide a great service for families to better understand the needs of their children. I think it’s important that we begin to tackle mental health disorders, begin to tackle the unknown pathways and tunnels of what’s happening inside of a child’s mind. Thank you so much for coming to Harlem, and I wish you the very best.”
Now with three locations, the Healthy Brain Network has seen more than 4,000 participants with hundreds more on the waiting list. The new Harlem Center will help meet the tremendous community demand for mental health and learning evaluations while deepening and diversifying this vital data set.
