It’s Time to Start Talking About Mental Illness
Who We Are
CONNECT brings together Summit County residents who are concerned about the mental health challenges facing our community. We are family members, loved ones, and friends of people struggling with mental illness. We are mental health service providers in Summit County. We are people not directly affected by mental illness who recognize the serious challenges facing our community. All of us want to see improved mental health services with greater accessibility in Summit County.
CONNECT was formed to de-stigmatize mental illness, to increase awareness and transparency of existing behavioral health services, to provide relevant community programming, and to build public and private support for increased spending on behavioral health in Summit County. We strengthen communities, save families, and change lives.
