The New England ATTC hosted this webinar for the Western Connecticut Mental Health Network (WCMHN). WCMHN is a division of the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and this was a specific request from this state-operated Mental Health authority. Over 200 staff were invited to attend, including psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, rehabilitation and mental health workers that provide services for persons with long term mental illness and addiction disorders. This event supports ongoing dialogue and understanding of the many societal forces, including structural racism, that contribute to health disparities in our community and the population struggling with addiction and mental illness.
