Puerto Rico Relief Efforts 

NYCPS, and its Psychiatrists for Community Empowerment (P4CE) Committee, has been in communication with our colleagues in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Puerto Rico’s School of Medicine to see how we can help. The mental health of their patients is especially fragile right now, with suicides at an all-time high on the island following the recent natural disasters, and they are low on much-needed supplies. They have provided us with a list of medications, first aid, and personal items needed for their communities.

Please join us in assisting our colleagues in their time of need and perhaps we can dispel some of our own sense of despair and helplessness with these efforts.

Who We Are 

Since its formation in 1955, the New York County Psychiatric Society, a District Branch of the American Psychiatric Association, has strived to be a resource for both psychiatrists and the public. NYCPS is composed of over 1,800 psychiatrists in Manhattan and Staten Island, and is the largest district branch of the APA.

We promote the common professional interests of our members, while working to improve the treatment, rehabilitation, and care of persons with mental disorders, and to advance the standards of all psychiatric services and facilities. NYCPS also aims to promote research, foster cooperation between those involved with the medical, psychological, social, and legal aspects of mental health and illness, and to make psychiatric knowledge available to practitioners of medicine, scientists, and the public.
