Assessment & Review

We conduct a region-wide biannual needs assessment for the State of CT as well as identifying needs and reviewing issues and services on an ongoing basis, both formally and informally. As the regional liaison to the state, we report findings and issues to the Commissioner of DMHAS and the state behavioral health planning councils on a monthly basis.
