Our mission is to help adults with mental illness lead more meaningful, fulfilling and healthy lives by offering resources, education, and opportunity.
The first symptoms of a serious mental illness typically manifest in the late teens to early twenties. It is common for young adults experiencing symptoms for the first time to withdraw from family and friends. Fear, lack of understanding and stigma often interfere with them getting treatment. Common issues include unemployment, homelessness, incarceration and substance abuse. Without a place to turn for support, many end up alone; sleeping in tents under bridges at night and wandering the streets by day. With proper treatment and a wide range of support services customized to one’s needs, many living with a serious mental illness can lessen the impact it has on their lives, maintain their independence and lead a productive life with a valued role in their community. Fellowship Place is the only agency of its kind in the greater New Haven area supporting the severely mentally ill population 7 days a week, 365 days per year, offering a comprehensive program of supportive services. Serving over 600 individuals annually, our programs are designed to improve an individual’s level of functioning, and own management of his/her illness.
The vision of Fellowship Place is to be a high-quality provider of services for adults with mental illness in the Greater New Haven area. An extension of our vision is to work in partnership with the people we serve and other organizations to provide ever-expanding opportunities through innovative programs and the efforts of dedicated, experienced staff, Board members and volunteers, supported by our endowment and other financial resources.
