Chronic mental illness, homelessness, and substance abuse have been identified as the top major health problems in Fairfield County.  To address these growing health issues, Western CT Health Network (WCHN) has implemented a community initiative to help people dealing with mental illness or substance abuse problems.

Without adequate insurance coverage for mental health services, many people have limited access to the psychiatric care that they desperately need.  Now those people can access WCHN community care teams and resources to help with their mental health needs and substance abuse problems.
