The Connecticut Women's Consortium's (CWC) mission is to provide training, advocacy and policy for women's behavioral Health. We've created this channel to provide information from our own program, as well as information from trainers, consultants, and experts in the field.

We are a nonprofit that collaborates with state agencies, non-profit providers, and local and national consultants. Although the CWC promotes women's behavioral health, we offer trainings on trauma-informed, gender-responsive care for both women and men, to create cultural system wide change.

Some of the issues involved in women's behavioral health include but are not limited to the following: psychological trauma (trauma-informed care), gender-specific care, Intimate Partner Violence (IPV)/Domestic Violence, addiction and substance abuse, women in prison/re-entry into the community, women' veterans, human trafficking, homelessness, co-occuring disorders, and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
