Save Allen Psych Day of Action

  • 181st St. 1 Train Station (map)

Mental health services in New York City are already at capacity, but New York-Prebyterian wants to make that problem worse. They plan to remove 30 beds from an already-strained system to make way for a lucrative spinal center instead of serving the community needs. We’ve been fighting the closure of the Psych unit at the Allen Hospital, and on October 17th, we’re going to canvass subway stations & local businesses to discuss the importance of mental health services and NYP’s plan to close the unit with the community.

The Day of Action will be two shifts: 8-10am, flyering around the subway, and 10am-12pm, canvassing local businesses, and we need your help! Interested in joining us? Email

Bilingual Spanish speakers encouraged. Training will be provided.
