PSI state chapters are made up of a variety of local stakeholders who further the mission of PSI on a grassroots level. Chapters work on a wide range of initiatives that they dictate for themselves because they know their states best!
All are welcome at PSI-CT! Survivors, mental health professionals, doulas, and clinicians all volunteer through the chapter in order to give back to their local communities.
As an all volunteer organization, PSI-CT requires anyone volunteering with the organization to first be a member. It is important that anyone volunteering with our organization be dedicated to our mission and both our fiscal and “on the ground” success. Please contact our Membership Chair if you need to request a reduced or exemption from the membership fee.
