Annual Report  2023

Dear Esteemed Supporters, Partners, and Friends,

I am thrilled to present The Connecticut Women’s Consortium Annual Report for 2023. It is with great pride that I reflect upon the remarkable strides we have made in our mission to empower behavioral health professionals in Connecticut, driven by our unwavering commitment to intersectionality. The Consortium has always been at the forefront of promoting gender-repsonsive approaches to behavioral health training and support. In 2023, we continued to evolve, adapt, and expand our efforts to ensure that our training programs are not only inclusive but also reflective of the diverse experiences and identities within our communities.

Program Highlights
1. Intersectional Curriculum: This year, we made significant enhancements to our training curriculum to further address the complex interplay of identities and experiences that impact mental health. Our programs now explore how various factors, such as race, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status, intersect with behavioral health issues.
2. Inclusive Partnerships: We strengthened our collaborations with organizations dedicated to intersectionality and gender equity. These partnerships have allowed us to pool resources, share expertise, and amplify our impact in advancing inclusive mental health care.
3. Community Engagement: Our outreach initiatives aimed to empower marginalized communities, raise awareness, and foster culturally competent behavioral health care. We engaged with diverse communities to ensure that our programs are responsive to their unique needs.

Future Sustainability:
I am pleased to report that the Connecticut Women’s Consortium maintained strong financial sustainability throughout the year. I am thankful to the generosity of our supporters, the success of our fundraising efforts, and prudent financial management.

Looking Ahead:
As we turn our gaze to the future, we are steadfast in our commitment to advancing intersectionality in behavioral health. Our strategic goals for the coming year include expanding our reach, refining our curriculum, and advocating for policies that prioritize intersectional mental health care.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the exceptional team at the Connecticut Women’s Consortium, our dedicated volunteers, our committed board members, our generous donors, and our esteemed partners for their unwavering support. Together we are striving to ensure that behavioral health services are responsive, inclusive, and equitable for all.
In closing, I want to express my deep appreciation for your trust and partnership. Your support is the driving force behind our progress, and I am excited about the transformative impact we will continue to make on behavioral health care in Connecticut.

Thank you for standing shoulder-to-shoulder with us on this meaningful journey.
