ABC’s Fast Break Mobile Mental Health Services has been extending crucial mental health services to children living in poverty for more than two decades. Led by a highly-skilled, Board-certified Child Psychiatrist, ABC’s Fast Break provides a full range of mental health services and an array of therapeutic modalities including family therapy, individual psychotherapy, play therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and group therapy.

ABC's mental health service model is three-fold:

  • Fast Break offers six Children's Mental Health Clinics, one of which is a designated Early Childhood Therapeutic Center.

  • The Children’s Mobile Crisis Team provides rapid crisis intervention to children anywhere in Manhattan via the citywide 24/7 hotline 1-888-NYC-WELL, keeping children out of costly, restrictive institutions.

  • School-Based Mental Health Services teams conduct on-site crisis intervention, broad-based mental health screening, individual and group therapy, and capacity-building training for faculty and parents in New York City public schools.
