Weissman Children’s Foundation

The Weissman Children’s Foundation (WCF) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2020 by Dr. Adam S. Weissman, with a mission to advance mental health access through innovation, community action and crisis relief, and compassionate, data-driven care. Our key partners include Harvard and Columbia Universities, CUNY-Hunter College, a Silicon Valley tech/EHR company, and the Westchester County Government, local community/faith leaders, and the county’s 62 after-school programs in underserved communities. Widely recognized for its COVID Mental Health Relief Initiative which helped over 1,000 underserved families during the pandemic, WCF is the recent recipient of Westchester County’s Healthcare Hero, 40 Under 40, and Public Health Awards, as well as the American Psychological Association’s Distinguished Contributions to Practice Award, one of the field’s highest honors.

In line with our global vision, a portion of CFI proceeds directly fund the development and initiatives of the Weissman Children’s Foundation and other mission-aligned charities, toward our end goal of accessible, evidence-based care for all.

Help us help others

As the pandemic wanes, WCF turns its attention to local and global crises, launching a Westchester Wellness Initiative in partnership with the county to provide highly specialized pro bono services for the uninsured and underinsured, and an Israel & Gaza Crisis Counseling Initiative (CCI). Our CCI provides short term (maximum 10 sessions) crisis counseling, for free, to anyone seeking guidance, comfort, and a safe space to process recent and current events in Israel and Gaza and their reverberating effects in our community and around the world.

Stay tuned for the launch of our Innovating Meaningful Partnerships Across Community Therapists (IMPACT) Initiative. The IMPACT Initiative aims to establish a Pro-Bono Clinicians Collective whereby clinicians from far and wide will donate an hour (or more) each week to provide pro bono, evidence-based psychological care to individuals in need. Participating clinicians will be eligible to receive Continuing Education credits through CFI. Throughout this Initiative, CFI will continue to expand community partnerships and hopes to further establish a sustainable model for offering high-quality mental healthcare to all people, regardless of financial circumstance.

Please consider donating to the Weissman Children’s Foundation to help us realize our mission of evidence-based care for everyone.
