“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” – Kathy Calvin
In 1908, our founder, Clifford W. Beers established the Connecticut Society for Mental Hygiene in order to combat discrimination against individuals with mental health conditions, to better advocate for their rights and dignities, and begin an organization that has grown to serve nearly 1,000 individuals a day through person centered care, advocacy, and community education. With facilities in six regions of the state, over 200 employees, and the potential to reach every individual across the state, the staff and volunteers of Mental Health Connecticut (MHC) continue to work to ensure every Connecticut resident has access to the services and supports they need to achieve overall health and wellness.

MHC partners with individuals, their families, and the surrounding communities to create environments that support long-term health and wellness. We measure success by our ability to help individuals obtain a safe home, achieve whole health, realize a meaningful purpose, and develop connections in the community. With your support, MHC can continue to expand its impact across the state and help others reach their personal goals for wellness.

Your support could help someone find their way forward, knowing they are not alone on their journey toward wellness. From a monthly donation, to creating a fundraiser event, to donating in memory of a loved one, there are so many ways you can make a difference!


Donate through our secure giving portal (Network for Good) and make a one-time, monthly, or annual gift today! You will have the option to designate your gift to a specific program, fund, or to be used as needed (unrestricted).



Creating a fundraiser is easy with MHC’s personal fundraiser portal. Sign up today and access our list of over 100 fundraising ideas to help inspire your efforts!


MHC accepts gift cards, items for our food pantries, art and gardening supplies, and the donation of services to benefit our program participants.



Every time you shop using, 0.5% of your purchase goes to support MHC. Add an item from our Charity list to your cart to have needed supplies shipped directly to our facilities.



Start a Facebook fundraiser to encourage your friends and family to join you in supporting MHC for your birthday, anniversary, or any occasion year round.



Donations may be made in honor of a loved one to celebrate their life or in memory of someone no longer with us. In lieu of flowers, a request for donations may be stated as an alternative tribute.



Want to give back to a great cause as part of your upcoming celebration? Tell us about your upcoming celebration and MHC staff will create a custom celebration page for you to share with your guests so that they may donate to MHC in lieu of gifts for your wedding, shower, or holiday party.

October 8-11, 2020, dedicated runners, walkers, and fundraisers will be participating on Team MHC for the Virtual Eversource Hartford Marathon. Join our team, donate, or fundraise with us!
