Republicans Take Aim at Connecticut’s ‘Disjointed’ Mental Health Services

State Sen. Heather Somers, R-Groton, called the lack of mental health services a system-wide problem in the state of Connecticut.

“We have a disjointed, disconnected system of care here,” said Somers. “There’s no continuum of care. People search for days to try to find help. We don’t have enough providers. There’s no coordination between our local schools and the healthcare community in an acute setting. So we really need to start to look at this holistically.”
