Mental Health Connecticut hosts various events across Connecticut to advocate, educate, and serve our community.

Eversource Hartford Marathon
Mental Health Connecticut (MHC) is honored to once again be chosen as an official Silver Charity of the Eversource Hartford Marathon. We whole-heartily agree with our friends at the Marathon Foundation (HMF) that, “In these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever to provide a remarkable, positive experience that builds community connections and lifts participants up in a shared mission to do good for each other.”

The HMF has committed to donate 100% of all registration fees to the official charities this year. Not only is the registration fee lowered to $25 for any race, but runners/walkers can still fundraise for their favorite charity to benefit those that need it most. We are excited to be a part of a fantastic group of charities who are doing good in communities across Connecticut and we invite you to join us.

“Run or walk knowing you are participating in something much bigger than a typical road race. Get friends, family, neighbors to join – this is not just about running, this is movement for a purpose.” – HMF

IC Walk
In celebration of Mental Illness Awareness Week (the first full week of October) members and staff of MHC’s rehabilitation resource center, the Independence Center (IC), gather together to promote health and wellness while raising awareness around mental health in the Greater Waterbury community. For over 20 years, the IC Walk has brought together MHC staff and clients for a walk around Waterbury’s downtown district and continues to show the community that with the support from staff and peers as well as active participation in program offerings, members can achieve recovery and better engage with their communities.
