ACMH serves hundreds of people every day in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx

We have guided people in managing chronic mental health, substance use, and other medical conditions since 1973. Under contract with Medicaid Health Homes and the NYC DOHMH, the program provides outreach, engagement and care coordination serving hundreds of people daily.

Our primary modes of service fall under supportive services and care management.


ACMH has a track record of success, the result of the people who make up the community.
