About Us

Parachute NYC is a new and innovative citywide approach launced by New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's Divsiion of Mental Hygiene, in the Bureau of Mental Health. Parachute NYC is aimed to provide community-based services to individuals aged 18-65 who are experiencing a psychiatric crisis. Parachute NYC will provide a “soft landing” as an entry point to the mental health system by enhancing four existing mobile crisis teams to provide immediate and ongoing treatment, creating four new crisis respite centers as a short-term place to stay when people are feeling that crisis is imminent and creating a Peer operated support line.
