As part of Connecticut's Mental Health Transformation State Incentive Grant (MHT-SIG), C-RECS has been created to establish a person-in-recovery (PIR) driven initiative to promote PIR employment and mental health system transformation. One of the primary goals is to increase employment of PIR from idverse cultural backgrounds at all levels of the behavioral health workforce. While employment of PIR in all sectors of the economy is critically important, this initiative focuses exclusively on employment in the behavioral health workforce. The C-RECS initiative offers the following services: Work-Life-Balance Coaching, Peer Employment Mentoring, Education, and Support Groups, On-line Job Search and Online Resources, Education and Training and Training and Consultation to Behavioral Health Organizations - Employers.
