Mental Health and Wellness

Bad Impact of mental health can affect your overall well-being. Under this program Project New Yorker works to increasing access to mental health and wellness services for pregnant and parenting families. Through the program we discuss prevalent issues of toxic stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, intimate partner violence, and perinatal mood disorders.

Project New Yorker’s health literacy initiatives extend beyond individual education, fostering a sense of community empowerment.
