Transforming and Strengthening New York State’s Mental Health System

An investment in hope, recovery and resilience

Governor Hochul's Fiscal Year 2024 Executive Budget includes a comprehensive $1 billion multi-year plan to transform the continuum of mental health care and drastically reduce the number of individuals with unmet mental health needs throughout the State.


OMH is seeking input from people and families that receive services, valued partners, providers, advocates, community leaders, and community members.

Your feedback will help us determine how to:

  • Implement new programming and use new resources to enhance the mental health system
  • Increase access to mental health services
  • End service gaps and promote equity in access for all New Yorkers.

Let us know your thoughts on how we can best improve your public mental health system and increase access to care in communities across New York State.

Governor Hochul first outlined this multi-year plan during her 2023 State of the State Address. Her plan aims to dramatically expand access to mental health care, reduce wait times, and ensure appropriate levels of care to correct our mental health care system, which has suffered from chronic underinvestment.
