Donate Today to Support Our New Transportation Services Initiative

Create a better transportation option for behaviorally challenged children in CT

“I have to believe that when my whole world walks out the door, he will be fine until I have him back in my arms.”

Everyone – parents and children – should feel safe when they leave for school each day, and this new transportation service aims to make that a reality for CT families, no matter what mental or behavioral health issue their child struggles with.

The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has graciously offered to match donations (up to $40,000) that are specifically earmarked towards the new transportation service – a fantastic incentive for people to make a gift since each contribution will have double the impact and help us successfully reach our goal.

NEW THIS MONTH: Share your story!!

Click here to visit our new online form where we’re collecting YOUR stories about how mental health has impacted families in our community. Our goal is to bring some light to the stories about mental health that surround us, because no matter what a family struggles with they should know that they are not alone. Stories may be shared anonymously if you prefer. Please reach out via our contact page with any questions about this project!

Stay tuned to our blog starting next month to see posts about the stories that are shared with us!

Our Programs & Services

Educational, Outpatient and Milieu, Psychological and Developmental, Community and Home-Based Services

The Community Child Guidance Clinic School was established in 1974 and offers state approved education and intensive therapeutic services. We serve children ages 3 to 15 years of age with varying academic levels, learning abilities, and behavioral and emotional issues that may impede their ability to learn. A great advantage to our program is the individual attention and stability our children receive due to the small class sizes and high staff to student ratio; currently about 2:1.

Outpatient and Milieu services provide a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services, many of which are specialized programs that target specific problems. Examples of some of the programs offered include trauma services, Evidence-Based Practice Models such as ARC and MATCH-ADTC, and NorthStar, which is an intensive outpatient program for children ages 5 to 12.

Community and Home-Based services work with families in their homes and communities in order to create a working partnership with families to improve overall functioning. This includes our In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services (IICAPS) program.
