About the new clinic:
The Behavioral Health Clinic is our most significant expansion in over a decade and will serve all of our neighbors in East Harlem, taking Bailey House’s client-focused services beyond the HIV/AIDS community. The clinic will be open for clients and to our surrounding neighbors who experience higher rates of psychological distress and trauma compared to the rest of the city, but face a significant shortage of quality mental health care. It will become a linchpin in our comprehensive approach to health and wellness, while filling a gap in services in the communities our clients live in.
Here’s what our CEO Gina Quattrochi has to say about our newest initiative:
“Depression and trauma are major obstacles to maintaining good health and stable housing while living with HIV, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses. The opening of Bailey House’s Behavioral Health Center in East Harlem continues our work to address structural barriers to health and wellness and is our newest program aimed at improving the health of all New Yorkers, particularly residents of Greater Harlem.”
