Catchment Area Councils (CACs)
If you are concerned about behavioral health services in our region, consider becoming a part of a CAC. The purpose is to bring behavioral health consumers and providers together to identify service needs and make recommendations about treatment and recovery.
CAC 1&2 serves Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport, and Wilton. CAC 3&4 serves Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford, and Trumbull.
RIPPLE has two primary goals: first, to bring service recipients and providers together in a way that centers focus on the voices of our peers in recovery, improves communication, and fosters a true spirit of partnership; second, to provide and promote consumer-crafted education, resources and information in the ever-changing landscape of the Mental Health and Addiction Services System.
