Welcome to the New York State Coalition for
Children’s Mental Health Services

Children’s mental health services can help make world of difference in the lives of children, youth, and their families, who have been affected by severe emotional disturbances.  These services help children grow to remain safe and receive the care they need to lead healthier, happier lives.

New York State Coalition for Children’s Mental Health Services (The Children’s Coalition) is dedicated to provide a unified voice for children mental health care providers and the families they serve through the maze and challenges of public policies, legislation and funding of the children’s mental health system.

Our Mission: To promote quality mental health services for New York’s children with serious emotional disturbance and their families by leading the service provider community in identifying effective practices and participating in planning and implementing a continuum of services that are family-focused, comprehensive, cost-effective, culturally responsive, coordinated and appropriately funded.
