Welcome to South Central Peer Services
South Central Peer Services is focused on providing services and employment for the clients of programs in the Greater New Haven area funded by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction. We were in operation for 13 years under the name of the South Central Behavioral Health Network until we merged on July 1st, 2012 with Continuum of Care, one of the largest non-profit mental health service providers in Connecticut. After the merger, we have continued to provide the same services, with the same staff and in the same office.
We employ consumers to serve as peer recovery specialists in the emergency department of Yale New Haven Hospital and the Acute Services Unit at the Connecticut Mental Health Center as well as at half-dozen not for profit mental health and substance abuse agencies. We also employ consumers at the Safe Harbor warm line.
We operate the TAP program which allows homeless people to move into sober houses and provides them with case managers. We house more than 130 people a year. We also provide grants to consumers in our region who apply for funds to do a project that means something important to them.
On this website you will find descriptions of our programs, an application for our consumer grants program and an application for employment in one of our consumer employment programs. Since this website is new for us, we would like to receive your comments, criticism and suggestions. Send comments
