A new website is up and running to provide support for young people here in CT! TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. They know what it’s like to feel alone, stressed, worried, sad, and angry. They've lived through the ups and downs of self-harm, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to find help.
