Keep the Promise Coalition (KTP) is a Connecticut Coalition of advocates (people living with mental illness, family members, mental health professionals and interested community members) dedicated to ensuring that a comprehensive, community mental health system is created and sustained for children, adults and families in Connecticut.
Keep the Promise Coalition was formed in 1999 by people living with mental illness, family members, providers and other advocates in response to the “broken promise” to invest in community mental health services and supports in Connecticut.
The state’s promise to build a comprehensive, community mental health system has not been kept forcing many people with mental illness into expensive settings such as emergency rooms, jails/prisons, homelessness, and institutional care.
KTP advocates for spending money smarter by focusing on cost effective, preventative, early intervention and community mental health services, supports and housing. Spending money smarter on proven solutions saves lives and taxes!
