Specialized Services

Children and adolescents, together with their families, are treated for a wide variety of behavioral concerns including problem sexual behavior, risky behavior (e.g., poor decision making, inability to set boundaries), and inappropriate internet use.  Specialized Services also offers support and treatment to individuals exposed to (or at risk of being exposed to) human trafficking. 

School-Based Health Clinics

On-site clinics allow our therapists to connect with young people in their schools and during daytime hours to address mental health issues.  Currently, school-based clinics are located in Clinton Avenue School (New Haven), Fair Haven School (New Haven), Lincoln-Bassett School (New Haven) and Wilbur Cross High School (New Haven).

Care Coordination

A strength-based, family driven, community-based program that aims to keep children and adolescents in their homes, their community and their own environments by collaborating with their families, community supports and providers to coordinate their care.

There are different paths to care coordination — and a family’s circumstances and goals will help determine which is the best path to care.  One option is the New Haven Trauma CoalitionClick here to read more!  Another option is Wraparound New Haven.  To learn more about that program, click here.
