Connecticut is the fourth most densely populated state in the US. It’s not very large compared to most other states, but with a population of around 3.6 million, there are plenty of people. According to SAMHSA, more than 116,000 of these people suffer from serious mental illness. Hundreds of thousands more suffer from any given mental illness. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Constitution State, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
