The SPOP Gala has been rescheduled for October 7, 2020.   Details to follow.

Service Program for Older People (SPOP) is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of older adults and to fostering their independent living through the delivery of comprehensive mental health care and supportive services, advocacy, and education.  We believe that emotional well-being is important at every age. 

We serve New Yorkers of all walks of life and offer:

  • Comprehensive behavioral health care for adults age 55 and older, including individual, group, family, or couples therapy
  • Bereavement support for adults of all ages
  • Specialized substance use counseling (when substance use disorder is the secondary diagnosis)
  • PROS/Personalized Recovery Oriented Services for older adults with serious mental illness
  • Home-based therapy for clients who are unable to travel due to disability (available in Manhattan only)
  • Appointments at community-based clinic satellite offices throughout Manhattan and in Downtown Brooklyn
  • Specialized individual and group therapy for caregivers
  • Training workshops in aging and mental health
