We often overlook – or don’t understand – the importance of good mental health as a part of a healthy, fulfilling life. Mental illness, substance abuse and emotional issues are just as real as other illnesses – such as cancer or diabetes – and can have a tremendous impact on the individuals and families it touches.
CHR offers a full range of comprehensive behavioral health care to children, adults and families in Central and Eastern Connecticut. We assist individuals in fulfilling their goals by instilling hope and providing services delivered with skill, respect and compassion. With the right help people can and do live healthier, happier lives. To access CHR’s services, make one simple call to our Assessment Center at: 1.877.884.3571 (1.877.88.HELP.1).
We Believe in
the Power of Recovery.
proudly served over 11,000 children, families and adults in 2012 with the sole
mission of providing real solutions to real problems. Some of our clients have
been brave enough to share with us their experiences with mental illness,
homelessness, addiction and an array of other difficult realities. Our wish is
that their stories of perseverance and resilience offer hope to others that
there can be light at the end of a dark tunnel.
thought of being in a secure environment like this has been nothing but a
blessing and has given me hope. I don’t have to remain homeless anymore with no
purpose and no direction. I can stick my key in the door and say I’m home. I
can put my bags down and unpack because I am going to be here for a while. The
people I’ve met at CHR have been nothing but positive influences in my life.”
Steve, a CHR client and resident
“This is a place that I can call my home. No more sleeping in abandoned
buildings and dirty hallways. Here I have somebody believing in me, and thanks
to CHR, I finally believe in myself.”
Iris, a CHR client and resident
“I had been brought to my knees by my addiction. Through CHR I got the help I needed,
and with lots of wonderful therapists, I began to find myself again, one day at
a time. Thank you to all of my treatment providers, friends and family who have
helped me throughout the years. I made it with a combination of medication,
individual and group therapy (any and all that were available), and peer
support groups in the community. They all helped me face my fears head on
without any sort of anti-anxiety drugs. I wanted to feel every emotion, happy
or sad, as it happened during this incredible rebirth of my soul.”
Bill, a CHR client
“...I reached my 41st birthday when I was diagnosed with chronic paranoid
schizophrenia. Because I was so sick, I harbored this secret fear that I’d
never work again, never financially support myself again, and never regain my
place in society. What broke me out of my paranoia? TRUST…first with The
Institute of Living, and then with CHR. After coming into CHR’s care, I was
placed in CHR Northfield, a group home for the mentally disabled where I lived
with seven others, plus staff, who all helped shape my recovery. Today, I am
living on my own, I serve on the Enfield Historical Society’s Board of
Directors, volunteer at the Food Shelf and serve as a lectern and usher for my
church. I’ve come a long way and am proud to say that I am back. Thank you
