On February 13th, 2021 our STARS CGI Fellows led a Town Hall conversation with special guest, Councilwoman Carlina Rivera, to discuss #mentalhealth. Topics included access to resources, holistic forms of healing, environmental/community support, legal reform, as they relate to mental health.

 

Opening with a Q&A, Fellows engaged Councilwoman Rivera with a span of questions ranging from ways New York City Council can assist youth facing mental health challenges to community programs that support our city’s most at-risk members. Afterward, our Fellows led attendees through breakout room conversations on each of the 5 topics in order to build a set of action steps to present to the City Council.
