Collaborating Agencies

The CT LBHS expands upon an existing and longstanding relationship among the member agencies. The short-term goal is to ensure that mental health and substance use disorder treatment is both accessible and culturally and linguistically appropriate throughout an 18 town area that includes and surrounds New Haven.

The CT LBHS member agencies include:

APT Foundation, Inc.
Birmingham Group Health Services, Inc.
Bridges… A Community Support System, Inc.
Chemical Abuse Services Agency/Multicultural Ambulatory Addiction Services
Connecticut Mental Health Center (Hispanic Clinic)
Crossroads, Inc.
Fair Haven Community Health Center
Fellowship Place
Harbor Health Services, Inc.
Hill Health Center
Hispanos Unidos
Yale Behavioral Health (Workers Achieving Gainful Employment)
Yale-New Haven Psychiatric Hospital

In addition, given the need to establish a culturally and linguistically competent workforce, the CT LBHS Leadership applied nationally recognized and recommended recruitment and retention practices set in place by the Hispanic Clinic and Yale affiliated training programs in order to foster the permanent placement of bilingual and bicultural behavioral health providers in CT LBHS community organizations. Following a successful local and national search, we recruited a multidisciplinary workforce of individuals representing the fields of social work, psychology, and psychiatry. The professional services offered through this expansion include individual, family, and group therapy modalities, case management, psychiatric evaluations, and medication management for Spanish-speaking adults presenting with a range of psychiatric and substance use disorders.
