Newtown and the Need for Mental Health Services in Connecticut

The tragedy in Newtown has touched us all. Aside from the horror and the sadness, it has also awakened the community to the need for mental health services for those who cannot afford private care.

Jewish Family Service, a licensed and accredited Connecticut not for profit mental health agency, has been providing comprehensive mental health services available to all Connecticut residents for the past 90 years. This recent economic downturn has severely limited the agency’s ability to provide these essential mental health services. Individuals in desperate need are no longer able to obtain them.
