Thank you for Giving Wellness!

Thanks to 35 generous donors we raised $3,250 in just 36 hours.  We will help the people we serve gain financial security and the things they need to be healthy like a nutritious meal they can cook in their own home.
We are continuing to raise money through our 2014 Spring Appeal.  If you didn’t get a chance to donate during The Great Give, you can still Give Wellness by clicking the donate now button on this page.  Your gift will help the people we serve at CMHC get well and stay well.

Together we are building healthy lives and community!



CMHC Director's Advisory Council

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 PsychiatryWe 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.
