I want to thank you for being a part of our Positive Directions family. We rely on supporters, like you, who share our vision that all individuals and families will have the skills, support, and resources they need to live a healthy life and contribute to
a strong community.
With your financial gifts, we help individuals recover their mental health through the prevention, treatment, and support we provide. In FY22-23, we served close to 800 individuals through counseling, medication management, and support groups in our outpatient treatment clinic. Your contributions helped us provide free and subsidized treatment to those most in need through our Treatment Fund so that healing could take center stage. Even with insurance, our average client’s co-pay is $100 per session, so the need for our treatment fund is as imperative as ever.
Most don’t know that Positive Directions is the backbone behind many community
initiatives, such as:
• Counseling Assistance Program, a partnership with Westport, Wilton, and Weston to provide barrier-free counseling to town residents;
• Youth Surveys in Norwalk and Westport that equip communities with data to develop strategies for improving the behavioral health of teens;
• Teacher Support Groups in partnership with the CT Education Association;
• Teen Nights Out, sober social activities for Norwalk teens through The Norwalk Partnership; and more
But with your increased financial contribution, we can do even more! We are counting on our loyal donors to help us make counseling more accessible to anyone looking for help, while providing continued support and programs in our community.
Donations can be made on our website and checks can be sent to Positive Directions, 90 Post Road West, Westport, CT 06880. Please consider us for your company’s corporate matching program.
Thank you for being in our circle of supporters who make this work possible!
