Hearing about OnTrackNY from current participants and graduates

We asked a few of our participants and graduates to share about their experiences with OnTrackNY.

The support system at OnTrackNY was really powerful for me. I was able to guide my recovery. It made me feel like I actually had input into how I was being treated.

- Drew, OnTrackNY graduate

Group therapy helped a ton. It was the communication that I had with the other [participants] there…Slowly but surely, I started putting the pieces together, and the recovery began.

- Sebastian, OnTrackNY graduate

OnTrackNY helped me discover my purpose in life.

The work OnTrackNY does in assisting young adults with their mental health has been extraordinary. The intrinsic value of this support and assistance for me has been life changing and close to priceless because it was a pivotal moment in my life and allowed me to recover. I’m very thankful and blessed to have access to a program as such.

- OnTrackNY graduate, Youth & young Adult Council member

At first, I needed structure so they offered me a peer support group and a brain gym to help my memory skills. And they connected me with someone who is also trans in the mental health community. They've been able to keep changing what they're doing for me as my needs have changed, like help with college applications and tips for studying.

- Jacquelyn (portrayed by an actor), OnTrackNY graduate

I have a whole team behind me who wants to help me go to school, help me go to work, help me get out of bed in the morning when I can't. Today, I have a lot more hope that I can live a full life. Even if days are hard, my future is in my control now -- before it didn't seem that way.

Common questions about joining OnTrackNY

How should I get help?

Getting support for changes in thinking and perceptions as early as possible plays an important role in recovery. Like other health challenges, the sooner you receive support for these experiences, the sooner you’ll be able to focus on pursuing your goals for school, work, and relationships.

Furthermore, the combination of early support and our services, also known as Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC), has shown to improve overall quality of life, including increasing social engagement and improving enrollment in school or employment.
