Community Counseling and Mediation (CCM) is a leading Brooklyn-based behavioral health organization committed to addressing the root causes and problems associated with mental illness and substance and alcohol abuse. As an innovative, community-based, social service organization, CCM provides a wide range of social support, counseling, health, mental health, education, and supportive housing services to at-risk children, youth, and families in some of the most impoverished minority populated areas of Brooklyn.
Our focus is to create a network of support to promote healthy, stable, and enriched lives and communities. Since 1982, CCM has provided a broad spectrum of social services to over 25,000 individuals and families annually who reside in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Manhattan. For more than three decades, the organization has operated more than 75 programs and has grown in direct response to the particular needs of Brooklyn communities and throughout New York City with a budget of nearly $17 million and a staff of over 270 employees.
CCM has since evolved into one of the very few NYC organizations combining culturally sensitive mental health services with a range of educational, health, and social activities. Our current programming includes youth development, foster care prevention, mental health services, foster care and adoption, substance abuse treatment, and supportive housing.
