On Monday morning, First Lady of NYC Chirlane McCray kicked off Mental Health Week of Action in Union Square to connect New Yorkers to free, confidential mental health help during the holidays. Joining her was Deputy Mayor for Strategic Policy Initiatives Richard Buery, as well as American Horror Story actor Denis O’Hare, who both spoke about the need for better mental health resources for those in need.
