The Connecticut Mental Health Center (CMHC) is an urban community mental health center with a 40-year tradition of serving individuals with serious mental illness and is the lead agency for the CSN. Founded in 1966, CMHC cares for more than 5,000 people a year in a variety of services, and treats individuals suffering from severe and persistent psychosis, depression, anxiety, addictions (including alcoholism, cocaine, and gambling) and those with co-existing mental health and addiction problems. CMHC also operates outreach programs for individuals who are homeless, who are at serious risk for mental illness, or involved with the criminal justice system. CMHC is also responsible for a specialized clinical service for people whose primary language is Spanish.[1]
