Creating Pathways
To Change

RHAM HS Girls Varsity Soccer Team w/ Executive Director Alley Nadeau

Listen. Assess. Recommend. Act.

Creating change starts with listening. Providers, residents, leaders and policymakers all have stories and ideas that can strengthen their communities. Amplify listens, offers expert advice and guides individuals and towns toward solutions built on the foundation of evidence-based approaches that promote wellness and enhance the lives of those impacted by mental health, suicide, substance misuse, problem gambling and other behavioral health needs.

Amplify promotes best practices that help communities live well and be well.

Through conversation and connection, we help communities assess their behavioral health needs, identify gaps in services, and develop local plans that address needs and promote the most effective resources available.

Amplify stands on the shoulders of decades of experience. We offer a depth of knowledge about behavioral health prevention, treatment, and recovery across the lifespan.


To strengthen the ability of our region to assess needs, develop plans, and advocate for strategies and resources to advance healthy communities.

Our Geographic Scope

Amplify is contracted to serve the 37 towns in North Central CT but our influence can be felt statewide. Local Prevention and Catchment Area Councils work at the grassroots level to raise awareness of substance misuse prevention and early intervention services.
