Two state-funded Therapeutic Group Homes (Baldwin Home and Anchorage Home) serve young men ages 14-21 who have required significant psychiatric services to improve their mental illness and reduce the number of disruptive DCF placements. Each group home consists of a five-bed single gender environment that is structured in a home-like setting with intensive 24 hours a day staffing. Each home provides an intensive clinical treatment program that creates a physically, emotionally and psychologically safe milieu for adolescents that have complex behavioral health needs. The clients attend school or work programs and are taught skills to assist them in the transition to young adulthood.
Two Gilead Group Homes and two Community Apartment Programs (all located in Middletown or Clinton) provide housing and support services to people ages 18 and over with severe and prolonged mental illness who are referred by DMHAS.
