Funding for this initiative is made possible by the Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services, via a grant from SAMHSA.

“In school, the teachers act like they know what they’re talking about to us, but when we come to CT STRONG, it’s like they actually know. I feel like they’ve been in our situations.”
“I was by myself. I had no one to go to academic-wise, getting trust from somebody to give it back… looking for other options… figuring out what I wanted to do… they don’t judge me upon what I want to do, they are like, ok– let’s work around it”
“I know there are a lot of kids just like me or worse who don’t know about the program or resources, and they are just sitting at home wondering about how to fix their problems. There are resources out there that could help them.”
Wraparound is a planning process used to build constructive relationships and support networks among young adults & their families. It is:
“I mentor kids now. I take what I learn and run with it. Everything they teach me, I teach someone, and they can teach their friends.”
“I am coaching now; I want to make an impact on kids now like they did for me.”
“Everyone is different but we have similarities. They can learn from us and apply it to others. I know I can pass on to people the skills I learned, things that worked for me or others… It can help the community.”
“That’s one of the best things to learn – I will never give up. Stop worrying about what people think or what could happen. I’ll keep going and help others as much as I can.”
Referrals are reviewed on an individual basis. Please contact the provider within your community for a referral form or to complete a telephone screening.
