Mental Health Transformation State Incentive Grant

In October 2005, CT was awarded a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for the purposes of transforming the state system of mental health care for all citizens of CT.  The work being done on transformation involves not only the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, but 13 other state departments and the Judicial Branch, consumers and family members, state and private providers and other key stakeholders.

Based on the Presidentís New Freedom Commission Goals and an additional goal focusing on workforce transformation, work groups have been formed to develop recommendations that may become part of CTís Comprehensive Mental Health Plan.  This Comprehensive Mental Health Plan will drive the transformation process across the state over the next four years to establish a state wide recovery-oriented system of care and services.
