The goal of the Community Mental Health Fellows program is to provide field experience for Yale University undergraduates with a passion for urban community mental health issues, and to expand the capacity of CMHC Foundation and its partners to fulfill its mission statement.�
Academic Year Fellowship Direct Service The Community Mental Health Fellows program is a partnership between Dwight Hall at Yale and the Connecticut Mental Health Center Foundation. Undergraduate students will form a cohort led by a student coordinator, CMHC Foundation Director Kyle Pedersen, and Dwight Hall at Yale Program Manager Mark Fopeano. Students will first receive exposure to the expansive work of CMHC, then work to identify distinct projects that advance the goal of CMHC Foundation while also addressing personal interest of the student. Fellows will also reflect on their experience through written weekly reports and come together for regular conversation with their cohort. Peer-to-Peer Support Advocacy, or Activism Fellows periodically meet with one another to discuss their experience and build collaborative projects.
