Mental health services are so important to the health and livability of our communities. Please do not relocate to a place where people who are underresourced and uninsured cannot access this vital service. Keep the Allen Psych unit in our area. Thank you.


Save Allen Psych!

Mignolia V

Please keep the hospital open!

Amy D

Keep us open!!

Hancy R

I have a serious mental illness. Why Allen why? Where will I go? Where will I cry? Please don’t hang me up to dry.

Jessica M

We need more services not less. Hispanic teens are committing suicide at an alarming rate. Let’s increase services to our community not close the services down.

Susan H

Mental health facilities are too scarce in our neighborhood! We need more not fewer.

Corinn M

Prioritize mental health!!!

Rimma K

Please save Allen Psych ward. It is crucial to many people’s lives!

Daniel W

Please put patients above profits. As an NYP empoyee who takes care of undeserved patients in this community, I see unmet need for mental health services everyday.

Irene F

Upper Manhattan needs mental health services, speaking as a resident and a social worker.

Pat Z

Please save this service!

Valarie B

This is the only psychiatric center in immediate area. With the rise of mental health issues in the society we need this here in our community and with the patients in the hospitals

Jim W

Please, we need this unit.

The S

We are from Inwood, please keep the psych unit!

Cameron S

Please save mental health services for all!

Kaarin H

We should not lose this facility. Allen should be concerned about the community, not their profit!

Jimmie B

I am in full support of keeping the Allen psychiatric space. We must have the mental health, here, in Inwood. People who need mental health care must be accessible to their families and friends.

Alejandro M

Darle más importancia a los servicios a salud mental a la comunidad!

Janle S

Please keep the psych ward open

Efrain O

Prioritize mental health care!

Ana M

Please keep this important resource open. Our community needs it. Thx

Mike M

We need as much mental health services as possible!

E. V

Por favor — do NOT close this ward. It is imperative for this community — I am from CUMC and WCMC — #DONOTShutDown 🙂

Emanuel M

Sending all psych patients from Inwood to Westchester Medical is totally unrealistic.

Lit R

It is your responsibility and your commitment to operate a community hospital. You don’t get to close this service. People can’t be traveling 2.5 hours by public transit to Westchester for «community» care! Get a spine, not a spinal unit! Also – open some adolescent beds!

Carolyn C

Please save the unit for our mentally ill New Yorkers

Paula W

There is an appalling lack of mental health treatment across the city–this community needs this!

Mia B

Save Allen Psych!

Scott S

Please save the mental health unit.
