New Haven, Connecticut will receive a $4 million grant to implement mental health programs in the city.
The program will include a new idea: The Stop and Shop on Whalley Avenue will host a counselor at the customer service counter 5 days a week. It's a neutral location to engage mothers and families, and there's no stigma associated with going to the grocery store.
We are excited to see the results of this new program and are encouraged by the plan to engage the community in the mental health needs of its children and families. Read more about the new initiatives here.
