Keep the Promise Coalition

2023 - $35,000

Fiscal agent: Advancing Connecticut Together, Inc.

This funding will help the Keep the Promise Coalition to create a coalition of peer support specialists and the people they serve to address racial and ethnic inequities in the behavioral health system. Peer support specialists are those with lived experiences who provide care to those in need of mental health support. The coalition will advocate for making peer support services more widely available in our state.
