Challenge

Harlem is a vibrant, growing neighborhood in NYC, with a lot of potential for growth and social change. At the same time, it is one of the lowest ranking neighborhoods in terms of education, housing and employment, while tobacco and alcohol consumption, obesity, diabetes, as well as mental health stigma, among other health factors, rank well above the average levels in other neighborhoods of New York City.

Solution

These problems, according to our experience, are not so much related to lack of means or access to services, but more so, they are related to people's mindsets. Despite the many socio-economic challenges they face, it is in the daily choices of each individual that they can find solutions. This requires training & focus. It is not easy to change overnight by yourself. That's what our program is all about, it helps participants get deeply in touch with their body & mind and improve their function

Long-Term Impact

This not only helps them change habits, self-regulate, improve behaviors, reframe their perspectives, and thus solve or prevent the many problems that come with unhealthy attitudes and choices, but also reduces costs/money and time spent trying to find a 'technical fix' which in the end does not guarantee a long term effect. Doctors and medication, or technical support, or a good salary, can help make life easier, but such things don't solve our problems to the root and are not sustainable.
