Connect 4 Mental Health is a national campaign that encourages collaboration among the mental health community and other community-based organizations – such as emergency services, law enforcement and public housing – to develop localized interventions that provide additional support for those with serious mental illness and also may help address larger community problems.
To help encourage the continued development of novel, community-based approaches, C4MH issued four Community Innovation Awards to U.S.-based programs in 2014 that exhibited innovative work in one of four pillars – early intervention, creative use of technology, continuity of care, and service integration. Each winner received a $10,000 award to support program efforts in their communities, as well as access to a one-on-one Mentorship Program to learn from exemplary community-based programs that were recognized as “national success communities” in 2013.
Connect 4 Mental Health is a partnership between the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the National Council for Behavioral Health (National Council), Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. and Lundbeck. To learn more, visit http://connect4mentalhealth.com/.
