Mental Health & Wellness

Closing access and delivery gaps to mental health care
About Mental Health & Wellness

Urban Upbound launched our Mental Health and Wellness Program to address the on-going mental health crisis in our community.

Our vision is to develop resilient individuals and communities by offering individualized mental health programs aimed at closing access and delivery gaps to mental health care.

The Challenge
  • Approximately 8% of adult New Yorkers experience symptoms of depression each year. 32% of adults living at or below the poverty line experience symptoms of depression each year.
  • In NYC, most of the youth with reported mental health disorders live in poverty.
  • Serious Mental Illness is more than twice as common for adults who live below 200% of the federal poverty level compared to those living 200% above it.
  • People from the city’s lowest income neighborhoods are twice as likely to be hospitalized for mental illness compared to residents from the highest income neighborhoods.
Urban Upbound proudly offers limited FREE one-on-one counseling with mental health professionals.


We pride ourselves on being judgment-free, inclusive, and confidential. We address both the social and emotional needs of our clients through an integrated model focused on well-being and personal growth.

Our team of mental health professionals can help with:

  • Anger and stress management
  • Personal empowerment
  • Post traumatic stress
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Family dynamic issues
  • Self-esteem & Body Image
  • Loss of motivation
  • Grief & more.

Our Mental Health & Wellness Program is championed by Rise, Light & Power, who generously kickstarted our mental health initiative as a Diamond Sponsor for our 2023 Gala.
