BLACK LIVES MATTER

The Mental Health Project of the Urban Justice Center stands in solidarity with the nationwide protests and movements challenging state violence against Black people. We know this violence is deeply rooted in the systems of white supremacy and anti-Black racism upon which this country was founded – and it must end.  Read the rest of our statement.


The Mental Health Project advocates for low-income New Yorkers living with serious mental health concerns.
