The Coalition for Behavioral Health’s training team collaborates with human service providers and communities to support the foundations upon which all New Yorkers can reach their full potential for resilience and well-being, across settings and backgrounds, and throughout the lifespan. By providing trainings, technical assistance, and resources to promote psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery, we bridge access to, and build the quality of, whole health practice.
