In January 2017, SPOP opened four new clinic satellite offices in Manhattan. The sites are all licensed to provide comprehensive behavioral health care for older adults and their caregivers age 55 and older, including assessments, individual and group psychotherapy, and medication reconciliation. The program is supported by the New York City Department for the Aging through the Thrive NYC initiative, which seeks to decrease stigma associated with mental health and increase access to service.
The new sites are co-located at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House on East 70th Street; Project FIND/Hamilton House on West 73rd Street; Educational Alliance Manny Cantor Center on East Broadway; and NY Foundation for Senior Citizens Mott Street Senior Center on Mott Street. Each site is staffed by a clinical social worker and psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner. The sites offer treatment in English and Chinese.
