The mission of BHcare is to provide comprehensive behavioral health, prevention and domestic violence services that improve the lives and health of the individuals, families and communities we serve.
BHcare is designated by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services as the Local Mental Health Authority for the Shoreline towns of Branford, East Haven, Guilford, Madison, North Branford and North Haven, and the Valley Towns of Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton. BHcare provides wraparound services for more than 3000 adults who are struggling with mental health issues and/or substance addiction. BHcare provides domestic violence services for more than 7,000 individuals each year, and prevention services for 5,000+ each year.
BHcare operates a variety of behavioral health programs including an adult outpatient program, and intensive outpatient program, an outreach/mobile crisis, and a jail diversion program. We provide case management, social rehabilitation, employment services, and a wide and expanding range of residential services, including scattered-site supported apartments, a group home (staffed 24/7) and a supervised apartment and respite program (staffed 24/7). BHcare is the largest housing provider for adults with serious mental illness in our service area. In addition to its behavioral health programs, the agency also sponsors a volunteer-run clothing bank, runs the Center for Domestic Violence Services and the Greater Valley Substance Abuse Action Council.
BHcare is fully licensed and has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities since 1998.
