Washington Heights Community Services

Washington Heights Community ServicesThe Washington Heights Community Service (WHCS) is a comprehensive community-based program for individuals with severe mental illness who live in Northern Manhattan. The Service consists of a 22-bed inpatient unit at the New York State Psychiatric Institute (NYSPI) and three outpatient clinics located in the communities of Washington Heights (Audubon Clinic), Inwood (Inwood Clinic) and the First Episode Psychosis Clinic at NYSPI (OnTrackNY /Connections Program). We serve approximately 1000 people and aim to promote mental health recovery and hope in a culturally sensitive environment. Our individualized treatment emphasizes rehabilitative practices and coordinated care from the inpatient unit to the outpatient clinic. Please refer to descriptions of each component of the WHCS on this website for more details.
