RYASAP

The Hub is an initiative of the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS). We are the designated Behavioral Health Action Organization (RBHAO) for Southwestern Connecticut. We support & coordinate behavioral health initiatives (mental health, substance use, and problem gambling) in Bridgeport, Darien, Easton, Fairfield, Greenwich, Monroe, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Stratford, Trumbull, Weston, Westport, and Wilton.

The role of the RBHAO:

  • Assess the Behavioral health needs of children, adolescents, and adults across Region 1.
  • Develop a Regional Strategic Plan to include priority recommendations for prevention, treatment and recovery services.
  • Provide direction for and oversight of Local Prevention Councils (LPC) funded by DMHAS through the RBHAO.
  • Build the capacity of local communities to understand and address problem gambling.
  • Serve as the Strategic community Partner to link state substance abuse prevention, problem gambling awareness, mental health promotion and related priorities to local and regional initiatives.
  • Collaborate with DMHAS on the implementation and operation of the Departments State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis (STR) Grant.
  • Submit all required performance data through the Departments IMPACT cloud-based data collection platform.
