The psychological and behavioral health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been complex and have had a particularly powerful impact on youth mental health in New York City communities. TRIE neighborhoods, identified for the disproportionate impact of COVID-19, have been designated for increased support and resources. The program described in the RFP, Connections to Care: Building Resilience in Youth (C2C: BRY), aims to improve community-based organization capacity to work with youth (ages 13-21 years) who reside in TRIE neighborhoods, to augment their mental health and wellness.
C2C: BRY seeks to:
Expand mental health knowledge, skills, and strategies among CBO staff in TRIE neighborhoods.
Develop a strong partnership between CBOs and select Mental Health Providers (MHPs) to refer youth for mental health and related services, when appropriate.
Improve mental health outcomes for participating youth.
Strengthen community coordination of services and resources through community engagement and partnerships with local CBOs and community leaders.
