Mental Health in Bridgeport

The Bridgeport Recovery Community Center, located in downtown Bridgeport, offers those recovering and those attempting to recover from addiction a place for support.2 Visitors can attend workshops and recovery meetings, learn about treatment and recovery options, take part in social activities, and more.

The limitations of a persistent and severe psychiatric illness can be profound. One of the more difficult aspects of coping with this as an adult is the challenge of finding employment with such a condition. Even when in recovery, or fully recovered, the lingering stigma of mental illness can be detrimental to success. At any given time, millions of adults with mental illness are unemployed.3 Bridge House helps adults who are being treated or have recovered from a mental illness find employment through their weekly Job Club meetings and transitional employment, supported employment, and independent employment programs.4 To find out more, contact Bridge House at (203) 335-5339.
