Announcement: Request for Proposals – CT Networks of Care for School Systems Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Promotion.
The Connecticut Networks of Care for Suicide Prevention (NCSP) Initiative (SM62916), in cooperation with the CT Suicide Advisory Board, is pleased to announce this request for proposals as part of the 2015-2020 Garrett Lee Smith Youth Suicide Prevention grant awarded to the CT Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) for 10-24 year-olds funded by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The NCSP grant is co-directed by DMHAS, and the CT Departments of Children and Families (DCF) and Public Health (DPH).
The NCSP’s primary goal is to strengthen the state’s capacity and infrastructure in support of mental health promotion, suicide prevention, intervention and response with the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs). To help accomplish this goal, the NCSP seeks to fund school systems and their partners that are uniquely positioned to integrate and coordinate mental health promotion, and suicide prevention, intervention and response activities to support the youth they serve.
