Introduction

Thank you for your interest in the Mental Health Service Corps!
 
The Mental Health Service Corps (MHSC) is a key initiative of ThriveNYC, a city program committed to promoting and protecting the well-being of all New Yorkers. MHSC aims to fill the long neglected gaps in mental health and substance use services throughout NYC by placing behavioral health clinicians within high-need communities.
This application is for primary care settings. MHSC within primary care will support the integration of mental health services by implementing the 
collaborative care model.Collaborative Care is a specific type of integrated care that treats common mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety that require systematic follow-up due to their persistent nature. Reference: http://aims.uw.edu/collaborative-care
