BHSN advocates for the rights, needs and empowerment of adults, children and families whose lives have been affected by mental illnesses or abusive situations.

  • BHSN is involved with the MAPP through the Clinton County Health Department which has as one of its foci mental health, specifically in adolescents. Through a subcommittee, BHSN staff are working with NAMI:CV, Mental Health Association of Essex County and Eastern Adirondack Healthcare Network, as well as other area providers, implementing the Columbia TeenScreen project.
