On Tuesday, August 13, the Child Mind Institute’s Harold S. Koplewicz, MD., was joined by Congressman Adriano Espaillat at the ribbon cutting of the Healthy Brain Network in Harlem. The Child Mind Institute raised millions of dollars in 2018 to open The Healthy Brain Network in Harlem, NY. The Healthy Brain Network has had approximately 2,500 kids participate in the program, with hundreds on the waiting list. The new Harlem center will help meet the tremendous demand for mental health and learning evaluations.
Families work with the Healthy Brain Network clinical team on a comprehensive evaluation over four total visits. All participants and families receive an extensive feedback session with a licensed clinician. Evaluations include structured psychological interviews, neurocognitive testing, Intelligence, and achievement testing, physical health testing, and imaging (EEG and MRI).
