Mental Health Resources

Danbury Hospital was awarded a three-year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) to establish a Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) training program.  The grant is in effect through August 2018.

This project will leverage Danbury Hospital’s Spratt Center for Simulation and Clinical Learning to provide an interdisciplinary learning environment in which SBIRT training and practical clinical skills may be modeled, taught, and practiced safely.  From a public health perspective, alcohol and substance use and abuse are significant problems that impact all cultural, racial, and socioeconomic groups, yet these conditions are preventable and treatable.  The SBIRT model is an integrated, comprehensive, evidence-based public health approach to prevention, early identification, reduction, and treatment of problematic substance use and abuse.

For more information about SBIRT, services available in Connecticut, and guides to engaging in lower-risk behaviors, please see the links below.
