DMHAS Senior Outreach

As a result of demographic changes in CT, adults age 65 and older with psychiatric disorders may meet or exceed the younger population with psychiatric disorders. To meet these needs, DMHAS established programs specifically for older adults.

Through contract agencies, the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) provides consultations and education, outreach and visits to homes and nursing homes. Age-specific weekly substance abuse group therapy is available throughout the state.
