Community Services Network

Who We Are

The Community Services Network (CSN) is a collaborative of sixteen community-based organizations that provide a broad array of coordinated behavioral health services to people throughout the greater New Haven area. Funded by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), the CSN serves more than 5,000 individuals annually, primarily from the towns of New Haven, Hamden, Bethany and Woodbridge.

The CSN is coordinated by the Connecticut Mental Health Center (CMHC), which is Lead Mental Health Authority for the New Haven area. CMHC is a joint endeavor of DMHAS and the Yale University School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry.

Our Mission

The mission of the CSN is to help individuals and families pursue and enjoy fulfilling lives in the community through the coordination of recovery-oriented behavioral health services.
