Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Mental illness is alarmingly high among black immigrant and refugee populations yet are seldom reported due to factors, such as culture, language, illiteracy, immigration, socioeconomics, and religion. The Black, Caribbean, African and Refugee population that GTR serves demonstrate mistrust of government systems, frequent mobility, a history of discrimination, and a strong culture that stigmatizes mental health behaviors. They also bear scars from their difficult past and recent trauma. Unaware of processes pertinent to their well-being, they are underrepresented in NYC’s larger mental health campaign.

Our specialty is trauma and culture - knowing that past hurtful experiences, as well as language, ethnicity, socio-economic status, and the way people were raised influence their life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Over the next 1-3 years, GTR will, directly and indirectly, reduce individual patient’s symptoms by 70%, and increase retention by 40% defined as patients staying in treatment for at least 14 sessions - within the Caribbean and immigrant population.

1. Culturally relevant training for clinicians
2. Provide evidence-based treatment (e.g. CBT)
3. Providing linguistic and culturally appropriate treatment.
4. Improve attitudes about Mental Health which will create buy-in among clients, by providing at least 3 trainings every year.

1. Licensed Clinicians
2. Committed Board Members
3. Staff trained in Culture and Trauma

GTR has partnered with University Researchers' and we now have a list of pre and post-assessments that measure attitude about mental health and culture for clients, as well as pre and post-test for symptoms (i.e. PHQ-9); and pre and post-test for staff training. We have also developed an observational tool and professional development tool.

We have also moved into a new space (our clinic), where we are seeing the client's that illustrate the demographic population we want to reach.
