TherapySafetyNet featured in Frommer’s NYC Free & Dirt Cheap, 5th Edition

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.

Remembering the Passariello Colloquium

Since 2000, I've been hosting a website for the Passariello Colloquium, a project to which I contributed as part of a working group on LGBT Issues in the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University New England. Because the Colloquium website will soon be taken out of service, I wanted to be sure its contents would remain archived. Following is a brief history of the Colloquium and descriptions of the events we put on in 2000 and 2001. I have particularly fond memories of the 2000 Colloquium, in which students and faculty were invited to 'walk in the shoes' of an LGBT person and report back on their experiences. The aim of our working group, led by Dr. Susan Hawes, was to enhance the cultural competence in LGBT issues for psychology students in training through in-vivo experiences.

Reduced Fee Psychiatry for Uninsured New Yorkers

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.
