While last week’s end to the Public Health Emergency was an important milestone, many children, families, and adults across Connecticut are still struggling with depression, anxiety, and addiction in the wake of the pandemic.
During Mental Health Awareness Month, which draws attention to the importance of mental wellbeing and celebrates recovery, CHR reminds everyone to pay attention to the signs and symptoms of behavioral health needs and to access local resources including:
- The new national 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline number is available by dialing 988 and may connect you with CHR’s Mobile Crisis Teams for youth and adults.
- To reach CHR immediately, call our Triage Center at 1-877-884-3571.
“We are here to meet the needs of the communities we serve and recently expanded our clinic hours for the convenience of families and individuals,” said Heather Gates, CHR’s President and CEO. “Whether you need to make more time for self-care or more intensive treatment, Mental Health Awareness Month is a good time to access the resources and care you need – and we are here to help,” she added.
