Mental Health Care Access & Education for Everyone

The New London Counseling Center is a place for our community to gather, connect, and heal. We are a nonprofit organization that is committed to promoting the emotional, relational and spiritual well-being of individuals and families. We believe in providing high quality, compassionate therapy and educational workshops to our community, regardless of one’s ability to pay. 

Your gift of $33 a month can ensure access to mental health care for local children, adults, and families regardless of background or financial situation
