The New York Mental Hygiene Institute (MHI) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded by the New York State Conference of Local Mental Hygiene Directors in 2001. It was launched to study and report on issues broadly related to community behavioral health in a non-partisan and independent manner. MHI conducts and promotes research, training and technical assistance, and serves as an agent for knowledge dissemination through collaborative forums and information exchange. MHI’s goal is to provide communities with resources needed to improve individual outcomes and system performance.
Given the nature of behavioral health in communities, MHI is interested in a very broad scope of activities, projects, and services. These include:
MHI is dedicated to the principles of social integration for children and families, effective care management, cross system collaboration, recovery, cultural competence, accountability and outcomes, and sustained education on disability awareness.
