OUR MISSION:To create a well-informed and stigma-free community with access to mental health services for all residents of Summit County.
YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO CONNECT SUPPORT:
CONNECT Summit County is one of 18 behavioral health agencies to share $2.8 million in funding from the Katz Amsterdam Charitable Trust. This generous donation involves a 3:1 matching grant of up to $150,000 to further expand our organization’s mental health resource directory and launch a 2020 anti-stigma campaign.
So, what exactly does this mean? For every $10,000 raised by CONNECT, the Katz Amsterdam Charitable Trust intends to give $30,000, with a maximum total gift of $150,000. Any funds raised and received beginning December 11, 2019 through April 15, 2020 will qualify for the match. CONNECT will focus on five Strategic Goals so that we can consistently, joyfully and with excellence, deliver on our mission.
Deliver Mental Health Educational Programming that Provides Useful Information and Combats Stigma: Create a year-round education program to help people understand mental health issues, empower them to take action and reduce stigma in the community.
Help People Navigate the Complexities of the Mental Health System: Provide support to help individuals find the mental health services appropriate for their needs through our Peer Navigation Services, Mental Health Resource Directory, and year-round programming.
Champion New Services: Identify gaps in mental health services and lead development of solutions.
Advocate for Better Mental Health Services: CONNECT will continue to speak as “The People’s Voice for Mental Health in Summit County”.
Build the Organizational Capacity Necessary to Achieve These Goals: Develop foundational resources — people, financial, and organizational infrastructure
The community conversation that CONNECT jumpstarted has moved mental health issues out of the shadows to become a priority in Summit County. However, the stigma of mental illness is deeply ingrained in society and battling it will be a marathon, not a sprint. Your support sustains CONNECT for the long run!
