Community Programs and Services

NewYork-Presbyterian Ambulatory Care Network

Behavioral Health Crisis Program

The NewYork-Presbyterian Ambulatory Care Network and the Division of Community and Population Health at Columbia University Irving Medical Center have developed comprehensive Behavioral Health Outpatient Clinical Services for children, adolescents, and adults to meet the needs of our community. Many services are provided in partnership with community-based programs and/or within community primary care clinics or schools. The Criminal Justice Investment Initiative’s Youth Opportunity HUB and Family Youth Development grants in 2017 further expanded behavioral health services for children, youth, and families. DSRIP initiatives have focused on expanding access, targeting high utilizers, and decreasing avoidable emergency department and psychiatric inpatient admissions across our behavioral health services. Behavioral Health Clinical Services are comprised of two comprehensive clinical components: Adult and Child/Adolescent clinical services.
