Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center (CS-HHC) announces that the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven awarded the health center a $35,000 grant award to support recruiting a new psychiatric provider.

CS-HHC is working with an external recruiter to fill the position in 2019.  The new position will provide prescription and clinical services to adult clients in New Haven County.  By expanding capacity, CS-HHC will reach as many as 300 additional clients annually with urgently needed mental health and substance use treatment services.  The CS-HHC capacity-building award is part of the Community Foundation’s 2018 grant awards package, totaling $2,670, 527, to organizations responding to pressing needs throughout Greater New Haven.

Pointing to the impact of the opioid crisis on New Haven and the Lower Naugatuck Valley, CS-HHC officials said the award comes at a critical time when the need is growing for treatment.

Michael R. Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, said, “We welcome this award from The Community  Foundation,  one of our most dedicated  community partners as we continue to respond to the critical health issues  facing residents of the communities we serve.”

He said, “We are building our capacity to serve more people, particularly as more people are battling addiction, mental health and other serious health issues.  Psychiatric providers play a critical role in our integrated approach to ensuring the delivery of high-quality treatment and services to the people throughout our community.”
