Welcome

The Citizens Community Collaborative is a group of mental health advocates, researchers, scholars, recovery support specialists, people in recovery, and other practitioners and community members, all working together to fulfill the promise of social inclusion and full community membership for people with mental health challenges.

Citizenship is our applied framework for advancing our work, both conceptually and practically.  We conduct research, run programs, advocate for policy change, and work at the grass roots level in our local community.  In all our work, we strive to build equitable relationships, share knowledge and information about mental health, and support efforts designed to promote the mental health and well-being of community residents.

The Citizens Community Collaborative is based at the Yale Program for Recovery & Community Health and supported by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services.
