Community-Based Behavioral Health Interventions in New York City After 9/11: A Provider's Story

By Jonas Waizer, Amy Dorin, Ellen Stoller, Roy Laird

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2007

Drawing upon their experiences serving New Yorkers in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, under the auspices of New York's F.E.G.S. Health and Human Services System, the authors share nine lessons learned, concerning: infrastructure; staff mobility; a flexible workforce; training; a focus on the unemployed; long-term care management; meeting contract requirements; public health vs. mental health; and strengthening individual and community resiliency. F.E.G.S. was transformed as an organization by its responses to 9/11, the authors conclude.
