ICD was the first comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation center in the United States, founded in 1917 by Jeremiah Milbank, Sr. Over the course of nine decades, the agency has served more than a quarter of a million people with every type of disability and from all walks of life. Our mission is to help people with disabilities achieve better health and greater independence at school, at home, in the community and on the job. ICD is a full-service diagnostic and treatment center providing medical rehabilitation (including medical evaluation, physiatry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, primary healthcare, neurology, optometry, orthopedics, and pain management), cognitive rehabilitation, speech/language, learning and hearing services, mental health services, addiction recovery services, vocational evaluation, training and job placement services, and a range of specialty services to over 4,000 individuals of all ages annually.
In addition to services provided at its main facility, for over 14 years ICD has been providing bilingual, culturally sensitive, comprehensive mental health and support services to approximately 100 children, their parents, and often their siblings through a state-licensed on-site Children’s Mental Health Clinic at P.S. 146 in East Harlem. This is the only barrier-free, accessible public elementary school in New York City’s District 4/Region 9. Approximately one-third of the school’s 600 students (grades K-5) have been identified as physically and/or seriously emotionally disabled and receive Special Education services. The goal of ICD’s Children’s Mental Health Clinic (the focus of this grant request) is to identify and address serious mental health and behavioral problems in order to positively impact the emotional, social, and academic development of these at-risk children.
