Unitas was founded by Dr. Edward Eismann in 1968 when he was a mental health clinician at Lincoln Hospital. Discouraged by lack of response to formal mental health services for troubled alienated youth within a hospital setting, Eismann took to the streets, formed bonds with these youth on their own streets and hangouts and enlisted their cooperation to become helpers to each other and their neighborhood children. They learned how to become "caretakers" to each other and resolve interpersonal challenges through talk negotiation to replace violent acting out. He created "healing circles" right on the street itselfand then into schools with all youth coming together to reflect on "getting along better with each other and learning how to settle problems peacefully".
Dr. Eismann spoke of the origins of Unitas and then engaged the African visitors and other guests from Massachusetts as well as local community representatives here in an Unitas "healing circle" for the sharing of peacemaking stories and strategies for expanding peacemaking efforts of mutual concern to all.

Dr. Edward Eismann is the creator of Unitas (Unity), a community mental health outreach organization established in the South Bronx in 1967.For the past 35 years, Dr. Eismann has implemented one of the most innovative and successful programs in New York City, a program deeply rooted in the psychological theories of Alfred Adler.
