The Jewish Board’s Community Behavioral Health treatment programs provide compassionate, high quality, evidence-based services to individuals and families in the communities we serve.  Our staff use a culturally competent, person centered approach to help individuals and their families develop skills and resources to improve overall functioning, to instill hope, and to strengthen resiliency.  Our programs work closely with community partners to address health disparities in our neighborhoods while also celebrating the strengths and resilience of our communities.


The Manhattan Day Treatment Program provides intensive clinical services to adolescents and young adults enrolled in PS 35 who are diagnosed with serious mental illness and are experiencing significant functional impairments as a result of the psychiatric disorder.  Individuals newly enrolled in the Manhattan Day Treatment Program are often transitioning from higher levels of care, such as psychiatric inpatient units or partial hospitalization programs, into a community-based level of care.  The program consists of a multidisciplinary team of clinicians that work collaboratively with school personnel in the provision of services.  The social worker is responsible for providing developmentally appropriate, evidence based interventions to clients and families; crisis intervention; advocating for clients/families; and coordinating with other providers engaged in the client’s care to maximize treatment outcomes.
