TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. While we’re not clinicians, we know what it’s like to feel alone, stressed, worried, sad, and angry. We’ve lived through the ups and downs of self-harm, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to find help. Fortunately, we found what worked for us. Our goal is to provide information and support to help you choose your path so that you don’t have to struggle the way we did.
So, welcome to TurningPointCT.org—guiding your search for mental wellness. Our mission is to empower teens and young adults in their search for emotional and mental health. Our website will help you understand your options and learn how to navigate the behavioral health system:
- We help you learn about treatment models, local community supports, and state and national resources.
- We connect you with other teens and young adults who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm, thoughts of suicide, addiction, mood swings, eating disorders, substance abuse, or any form of emotional distress or mental illness.
We need your input to make this resource meet your needs. Please join our “Let’s Talk” forum and tell us what you think!
-The TurningPointCT.org team
The development of TurningPointCT.org was managed by the Southwest Regional Mental Health Board with funding from the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. The content was created by and in consultation with young adults in recovery from around Connecticut.
TurningPointCT.org does not provide treatment services, support services, recommendations for specific programs or providers, or referrals to clinicians or treatment facilities. We do not have clinicians available on-hand. If you need help right away, call 211 or read more about crisis services (and how to access them) here. Otherwise, please refer to our Resources page to find lists of programs near you.
Please report any problems with the website and give us feedback at TurningPointCT@swrmhb.org.
