CONNECT members support each other and residents of the community by engaging in activities that foster and maintain wellness.
CONNECT partners with organizations and community leaders to educate the public on topics concerning mental health advocacy and recovery, as well as facilitates networks designed to connect individuals with supportive resources.
Trained CONNECT facilitators provide outreach to students, professionals and other community members, openly sharing stories of their personal experience with mental health distress and recovery. We promote the ongoing discussion of mental well-being, advocate for the reduction of stigma, and encourage individuals affected by mental distress to seek support early.
