Neuroscience 2023 will present the Mental Health Advocacy Award to Elm City COMPASS (Compassionate Allies Serving our Streets), a community-based initiative to create a system of sustainable supports for individuals in New Haven experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. COMPASS takes a comprehensive approach to civilian crisis response which includes maintaining a crisis response team, collaborating to enhance the crisis response service system, supporting an active Community Advisory Board, and conducting a comprehensive evaluation. One goal of COMPASS is to reduce mental health and substance use stigma when individuals are in crisis. The program is directed by Jacob K. Tebes, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry (Psychology), in the Child Study Center and of Public Health (Social and Behavioral Sciences), Yale School of Medicine.
The conference organizers wish to thank Yale Department of Psychiatry, Connecticut chapter of the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), and Yale Center for Brain and Mind Health for their generous financial support of Neuroscience 2023.
