CEO Jody Rudin answers the biggest questions on the state of mental health care in New York City with Crain’s New York Business.
Jody Rudin has loved ones who have experienced mental illness. As such, she has always been determined to ensure her loved ones know they’re not alone in their experiences. That determination has poured into her role as executive director of the Institute for Community Living, which she has been in since 2021. The organization serves upwards of 13,000 people per year and 3,500 New Yorkers sleep in an ICL facility each night through the organization’s housing programs. This year the institute is seeking to expand its services, which is particularly important given that mental health crises have been on the rise among New Yorkers–and a frequent topic of discussion among the city’s leaders. As mental health issues are on the forefront of every New Yorker’s life, Rudin is looking to help stem the stigma surrounding them.
