The Clearfield-Jefferson Mental Health/Mental  Retardation  Program has changed our name to Community Connections of Clearfield/Jefferson Counties. The name Community Connections is fitting because we help individuals in our community connect with the services they need when they need them, within our community and without stigma. The name change also coincides with the movement to replace the term Mental Retardation (MR) with Intellectual Disability (ID). Community Connections remains focused on the empowerment and transformation to a recovery based system of care.
