Blanton-Peale Institute unites psychology with faith and spirituality. It was founded in 1937 by Norman Vincent Peale ("The Power of Positive Thinking") and psychiatrist Smiley Blanton. Blanton-Peale offers direct counseling services based on a sliding scale, and post-graduate educational programs and pastoral care studies programs in English and Korean. Our programs serve urban communities, and are in the forefront in training multi-cultural mental health counselors, and in providing mental health counseling and services for people of all ages, ethnicities, and faiths who live in the New York metropolitan area. The Blanton-Peale''s licensed Counseling Center in Manhattan and five community counseling centers throughout the boroughs and Long Island reach nearly a 1,000 individuals, couples, and families of all faiths each year.


More than one-quarter of the clients who receive therapy through Blanton-Peale's clinics are disabled and elderly people on Medicare or individuals and families on Medicaid. More than half of our clients are working families and individuals without medical insurance and thus require significant fee subsidies of some $250,000 each year from Blanton-Peale. Blanton-Peale counselors do not promote any particular faith; they help clients relate in greater depth to their own values and beliefs. Blanton-Peale actively seeks funds to support its scholarship programs for highly qualified multicultural students as well as working clergy enrolled in the continuing education programs. Currently, clients served by Blanton-Peale can receive counseling in some nine languages, including Spanish, Laotian, Swahili, Korean, Creole, French, and Thai. The Blanton-Peale Institute promotes mental health services that make counseling more accessible to inner city residents, which improves the outcome for many. Blanton-Peale works to provide counselors from a patient's own racial/ethnic/language background.
