  • What is CommuniCare?

    In 1996, Birmingham Group Health Services, Inc., Bridges…A Community Support System, Inc., and Harbor Health Services, Inc. came together to form a unique and dynamic behavioral healthcare partnership to meet the emerging needs of citizens living and working in their region, while addressing the long-term challenges and opportunities presented by a continually changing healthcare environment. In 2012, BGHS and HHSI merged to create BHcare.

    Both CommuniCare agencies are licensed, nationally accredited and are designated by the CT Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services as Local Mental Health Authorities. With additional funding from the Department of Social Services, Department of Developmental Services, Department of Children and Families, as well as local and private sources, these agencies provide a comprehensive range of recovery-based psychiatric and substance abuse services for adults and children.

    CommuniCare agency services are primarily provided for the towns of Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethany, Branford, Derby, East Haven, Guilford, Hamden, Madison, Milford, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Oxford, Seymour, Shelton, West Haven, and Woodbridge. Emergency Mobile Psychiatric Services for both children and adults assures a rapid response to all citizens. Combined, the communities served by CommuniCare cover a population of more than 320,000 individuals.
