The organization will continue to raise funds to ensure accessible behavioral youth and adolescent health care.
The Greenwich United Way (GUW) successfully reached its goal of raising $1.6 million for a groundbreaking new Adolescent Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that is being developed in partnership with Greenwich Hospital and is the community’s first IOP behavioral health program designed for young people. The new facility, set to open in February, will be located at 500 W. Putnam Avenue, co-located with Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital Pediatric Specialty Center in Greenwich. The GUW plans to continue fundraising in order to provide financial assistance for those patients of the facility who may be uninsured or underinsured, ensuring that all in need will have access to essential behavioral and mental healthcare.
The Greenwich United Way embarked on this initiative with Greenwich Hospital due to the results showing that mental health was a top three need from the organization’s 2020 Needs Assessment and that this service gap existed in the Greenwich community.
HUSKY Health insurance will cover a significant portion of the care provided by the Adolescent Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Program and GUW gifts will cover additional fees such as co-pays.
