Parachute NYC is a new and innovative citywide approach to providing community-based services to individuals aged 18-65 who are experiencing psychiatric crisis Parachute NYC will provide a “soft landing” as an entry point to the mental health system by enhancing four existing mobile crisis teams to provide immediate and ongoing treatment, creating four new Crisis Respite Centers as a short-term alternative to hospitalization and creating a Peer operated Support Line.

Riverdale Mental Health Association will operate the Bronx Crisis Respite Center (CRC) as part of Parachute NYC.  The Bronx CRC is a safe, home-like setting where people experiencing psychiatric crisis can stay as an alternative to hospitalization.  It is a warm, friendly and supportive environment where guests are taught to use new recovery and relapse prevention skills. Peer counselors also serve as warm line operators. The RMHA Parachute program is scheduled to open in September 2013.
