The city will start involuntarily hospitalizing people who appear to have severe mental health issues and cannot "meet basic needs" like food, shelter and health care, Mayor Eric Adams said Tuesday.

Kathryn Wylde, the president and CEO of Partnership for New York City, which builds partnerships between city businesses and city government, joined Rocco Vertuccio and Shannan Ferry Sunday morning on NY1 to discuss the new mental health directive.

After Wylde, Matt Kudish, the executive director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City, also joined NY1 to discuss the rule.
