RMHA is an award-winning, not-for-profit agency providing effective behavioral healthcare to approximately 2,000 individuals living in the Northwest Bronx, Upper Manhattan and Westchester County. RMHA was founded by local leaders led by The Society for Ethical Culture in 1959 in response to the overwhelming perceived need for community mental health care in the area.
In our 57th year, RMHA continues to thrive on the principles on which it was built: quality and affordability, promoting community involvement and enthusiasm through local and city-wide partnerships. We maintain formal and informal links with other Bronx and citywide mental health, substance abuse and social service agencies including the Coalition of Behavioral Health Agencies, Inc. We continually seek new ways to remain meaningfully connected to our constituents and to keep pace with the growth and shifting needs of our vibrant and culturally diverse community.
We have earned a reputation for excellent service and management and are well regarded as a field placement site for graduate students from professional training programs throughout Greater New York. RMHA received the Mental Health Agency Award from the New York City Department of Mental Health for exceptional performance. In 2009-2010, RMHA served more than 2,000 clients throughout the Bronx, including schools, churches and community centers.
