CHR is the most comprehensive, non-profit behavioral healthcare provider in Connecticut, offering a wide range of personalized services for children, families and adults whose lives have been touched by mental illness, addiction or trauma. Our largest outpatient offices are in Manchester and Enfield, with smaller offices throughout central and eastern Connecticut and several community-based programs.
CHR’s mission is to help adults, children and families find Real Hope for the challenges of Real Life through an array of community- based mental health, substance use, child welfare, supportive housing, foster care, prevention and wellness services, and integrated care. Our name embodies our commitment to community-based care, instilling hope for a healthy, happy and productive future, and utilizing all available resources to achieve change. CHR is proud to provide services that achieve Real Quality with Real Results.
CHR’s history dates back to the mid-1960’s, and since its creation, we have become a trusted community resource and well-respected service provider. Throughout our history, we have added new programs, grown into new locations, collaborated with other healthcare providers and recruited exceptional staff to meet the needs of the clients we serve.
Today, we employ more than 800 experienced professionals, including licensed therapists, psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, case managers, and people with lived experience who provide expert care to more than 27,000 people every year. We are accredited by The Joint Commission, licensed by the state and have repeatedly been voted among the Top Workplaces in Connecticut by the Hartford Courant.
As many as possible. We have more than 800 employees and have transitioned as much of our services that we can to telehealth, but among our 80+ programs, more than half are community based and considered essential. We have team members who are supporting 24/7 crisis support hotlines. We have staff providing intensive outpatient and community based support for individuals with SPMI. We also have staff members who are going into our local correctional facilities and providing medication assistant treatment to prisoners on a daily basis. All adult staff.
