From 2007 to 2013, TherapySafetyNet served as a volunteer-run referral service to connect uninsured New Yorkers with socially responsible therapists. Here’s what we accomplished, by the numbers. http://wp.me/p25OMs-rM

I just noticed TherapySafetyNet was included in Frommer's NYC Free & Dirt Cheap, 5th Edition (2013) by Ethan Wolff. I founded TherapySafetyNet in 2007 to address the needs of uninsured New Yorkers. While we are currently winding down our operations because our mission has been fulfilled by the passage of the Affordable Care Act, I'm so pleased to see TherapySafetyNet receive this kind of attention in print, and hope that our presence in Frommer's will help uninsured New Yorkers find affordable care--whether by way of TherapySafetyNet through the end of 2013, or the New York State of Health thereafter.
After six years trying to help uninsured New Yorkers through my role directing TherapySafetyNet, there's light at the end of the tunnel: Solid plans at affordable premiums with mental health coverage included by law. Enrollment in New York's Health Benefit Exchange begins in October 2013. // Full post at TherapySafetyNet.org

A few words from the perspective of TherapySafetyNet’s role in helping uninsured New Yorkers. Follow the link here: Affordable Care Act Upheld by Supreme Court.
In my role as Executive Director of TherapySafetyNet, I’m pleased to announce the addition of reduced fee psychiatric services as an additional benefit for uninsured clients engaged in reduced fee psychotherapy with a participating TherapySafetyNet clinician.
This benefit comes by way of our collaboration with Milan Patel, MD, who has joined TherapySafetyNet as consulting psychiatrist.
Our collaboration is intended to help the vast number of uninsured New Yorkers who fall between the cracks–not eligible for social services, yet not offered employer sponsored health insurance.
Dr. Patel’s involvment adds a much needed dimension to TherapySafetyNet, and was born out of talks held over the past few months both with Dr. Patel and among TherapySafetyNet’s executive committee.

Today the new TherapySafetyNet website goes live. We have developed a fresh new design with increased simplicity and usability. As before, the site includes our directory of socially responsible therapists–psychologists and social workers practicing in Manhattan and Brooklyn, each of whom is committed to our cooperative vision of providing affordable psychotherapy to uninsured New Yorkers.
