20/20 Vision just in time for the Holidays! (+ video & events)

December 23, 2019

As we enjoy the holiday season, The Hub thanks all our community partners for your hard work this past year and looks forward to collaborating to make 2020 a year to remember!


Take a moment to get inspired for next year with the ideas in the video below, and read on for our vision for 2020 as well as some upcoming events. 

We hope to end this decade on a positive note & to fulfill our 2020 vision:


The Hub's 2020 Vision for Southwest CT

  • Suicide & overdose rates will decrease in the region

  • Youth, young adults & families will become more aware of the risks of vaping and marijuana (as well as other substances and addictive behaviors such as gambling)

  • Peer support resources will expand in the region to enhance wellness and recovery 

  • All of us will work for better balance in our lives, reducing stress, improving social connectedness, and practicing mindfulness at home, school and work 

We pledge to support this vision by:

  • Regionalizing suicide response strategies

  • Sharing prevention resources across communities 

  • Building regional capacity to address risky behaviors through education, screening,  and environmental changes

  • Providing regional data and strategy development to address treatment needs and gaps 

  • Increasing consumer advocacy to expand peer support  in the region 

  • Supporting wellness initiatives 

  • Advocating for change and improved connections to care
