The Southwest Regional Mental Health Board is one of five such boards in Connecticut, each established by state statute giving it the primary function of reviewing and evaluating all mental health services receiving state funding in this area.

Each board has a number of Catchment Area Councils, which are more localized citizen advisory bodies that carry out functions of the board at more specific community levels.

The purposes of the Southwest Regional Mental Health Board and the Catchment Area Councils are to promote mental health, to prevent mental illness, and to assist the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services in the establishment of a single linked system of regionalized mental health services.
