Dr. Cohen, in his role as consultant to New York City Mayor Giuliani and Chancellor Levy, conducted a groundbreaking needs assessment post-9/11.
Design and Methodology:
- 100 schools
- Grades 4-12
- Approximately 900 students per grade
- Total N=8,000 students
A significant percentage (up to 25%) of the New York City Public School Children were identified as at-risk for eight major mental health disorders including anxiety and PTSD.
In an unprecedented display of cooperation, agencies, educators and mental health providers all came together to collectively implement therapeutic interventions. As opposed to subjective observation, these interventions were — for the first time in this field — based on scientific mental health needs assessments and data.
