Mental Health Update

Central, North Country, Mid-Hudson: Give your input at OMH Community Engagement Sessions!







Remaining locations announced – Register in advance!

In addition to our Southern Tier sessions tonight and tomorrow morning in Corning, we are also announcing the remaining locations for Community Engagement sessions in Central New York, the North Country, and Mid-Hudson (see below). We’re collecting valuable information from providers, advocates, people and families with lived experience, community members, and county leadership.

During these sessions we will discuss the mental health priorities outlined in Governor Hochul’s 2023 State of the State plan and Fiscal Year 2024 Executive Budget and ask for your feedback on how to best make the new opportunities work for your community. Your input will be integral in OMH’s planning process for these historic resources aiming to expand housing, outpatient programs, school-based clinics and hospital services, and increase insurance coverage for mental health services.

Please see the dates and locations below and register in advance for the session that works for you. The evening and morning sessions in each location cover the same content; both are offered to ensure we reach as many people as possible. The session will begin with a review of the initiatives by OMH leadership and then we will break into groups for focused discussion.
