|9/11 MENTAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROGRAM
The 9-11 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Program offers reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs incurred for mental health treatment regardless of insurance benefits, immigration status, or residency. The program is for people who were directly affected by 9/11 and those who shared a household with them at the time of the attacks. Eligible participants include those who lost a family member, were injured, lived or worked in the areas near any of the disaster sites or were visiting the areas that day, lost a job or significant income as a direct result of the attacks, or were a rescue, recovery, or morgue worker officially deployed to the sites. Eligible participants may be reimbursed for mental health services they received since 9/11, or for treatment they may want now and can include counseling, medication, acupuncture, or hospitalization with a licensed practitioner of the participantís choice. The 9/11 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Program is funded by the American Red Cross and administered by the Mental Health Association of New York City.
