Connecticut Mental Health Center Foundation, Inc.
Building Healthy Lives & Community
We are a private non-profit supporting organization for the Connecticut Mental Health Center, a landmark partnership between the State of Connecticut, Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and Yale University School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry. We sponsor programs and public education and administer charitable funds that help adults in mental health and addiction recovery thrive in our community. The CMHC Foundation helps individuals served by the Connecticut Mental Health Center and the Community Services Network (CSN) for which CMHC is the lead agency.
Founded in 1966, CMHC is an urban community mental health center in New Haven's Hill neighborhood and one of the first centers of its kind in the country established after President Kennedy's landmark 1963 legislation. CMHC serves over 5,000 men and women every year, all of whom are poor with little or no insurance. The Center has an exceptional tradition of supporting individuals living with serious mental illnesses such as psychosis, depression, anxiety, and also those with addictions or co-occurring mental health and addiction problems.
