One year ago yesterday, on December 9th 2014, the Immigration Advocacy and Support Center officially opened. It’s been officially one year of operation now! Thank you to all the support we have received throughout the process. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve the diverse community of New London and we look forward to serving the New London area community for many years to come.

ACCESS Mental Health CT is in danger of losing its funding because of the new budget proposal from the Governor and his Administration. The center needs the funding in order to keep helping youth and their families in CT to connect to the appropriate behavioral health treatment. ACCESS Mental Health trained over 1,400 Primary Care Paramedics (PCPs) in the first year and is looking to help many more to ensure that children receive the mental health treatment necessary and appropriate to their needs. ACCESS needs the support of the community to keep functioning and helping our children’s well-being.
“ In the first year, 380 (79%) of pediatric and family care practices with over 1,400 PCPs enrolled in the program across the state. Prior to enrollment, only 15% of PCPs surveyed said they could meet the needs of children with behavioral health problems, 81% said they weren’t able to receive a psychiatric consultation timely and 89% said there wasn’t enough access to child psychiatry in CT”
