Work to end the stigma that surrounds mental health.
There are so many reasons that people go years without accessing the mental healthcare that they need. Reasons like cost, availability of providers, stigma, or not knowing where to go. When you work for CONNECT Summit County, you work to lower these barriers so that everyone can access the mental health services they need.
CONNECT Summit County’s mission is to create a well-informed, stigma-free community with access to mental health resources for all. We do this work through nimble, grassroots tactics. The work environment is fast paced with a focus on community engagement; we are mission focused with a positive, accountable work environment.
