Rally to Save Our WNY Children’s Psychiatric Center

The WNY Children’s Psych Center Coalition needs your help this Tuesday, September 1st. The NYS Office of Mental Health has scheduled public forums for comments regarding their proposal to close the WNY CPC and merge it into the Strozzi Bldg. of the Buffalo Psych Center.

Although there will be two forums at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, at SUNY Buffalo State, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222 (September 1, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and September 2, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.) and you are encouraged to attend either or both:

The WNY CPC will be holding a peaceful rally in support of our children, youth and families beginning at 5:30 PM on Sept. 1st outside the Burchfield Penney Art Center, 1300 Elmwood Ave.Save Our WNY CPC

The WNY CPC is inviting media there so they really need you, your friends and families, everyone to show support that our children, youth and families’ place of hope and recovery needs to remain a separate, child-centered facility in West Seneca.

Thank you all for your help in this important matter.

PS – you can register to attend either forum, as well as submit your thoughts and comments on this plan by clicking on the links below. Thanks again.
