Description

Parachute NYC is a New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) initiative that provides alternatives to hospitalization for people experiencing the first year or so of new mental health difficulties.

As a partner of Parachute NYC, SUS serves young adults 18-30 years old with mental illness—those with little or no experience with the institutional mental health system, and those needing respite from their current living environments. SUS’ Crisis Respite Center (CRC) in Brooklyn offers these young adults temporary residential care for up to two weeks, in a safe and supportive home-like environment, helping to prevent chronicity of mental illness.

We do our work one person at a time, in partnership with each of the 7,000 individuals whose lives we touch. That, plus our  commitment to full and meaningful societal inclusion  is what makes us a leading human services organization.   Parachute NYC Respite Brooklyn, NY Our residences and support services create opportunities for individuals where traditional services have not, promoting learning, engagement and skill-building. These services are designed in collaboration with the individuals and/or their families based on their needs, strengths and interests.
