About Us

Pathways is a private, non-profit agency that provides services for adults who suffer from severe and prolonged mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression. Programs include safe, affordable housing with varying levels of support, case management, and rehabilitation services.

Our staff consists of a dedicated group of professionals and paraprofessionals, providing individualized care and attention, enabling each client to focus on personal strengths while learning and refining community living skills. Service plans are flexible and reflect a client’s goals, ability, and current level of functioning. Short term, transitional, and long-term support are available, depending on need.

Clients receive psychiatric care at local mental health clinics. Pathways’ staff works closely with psychiatrists and other members of the clinical team to ensure clients follow through with all treatment recommendations. Medication monitoring, psychoeducation, and crisis intervention are provided by Pathways to support clients’ efforts to manage their mental illness and live safely and productively in their home community.

Funding for Pathways is provided by the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, the CT Dept. of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the United Way of Greenwich, and corporate and private donors. An active Board of Directors, comprised of community volunteers and relatives of mentally ill adults, establishes and maintains high standards for the quality of care and service provided.
