Care at CMHC may begin in several ways, including walk-in or scheduled appointments at one of four clinical sites (34 Park Street, Hispanic Clinic, Substance Abuse Treatment Unit, or West Haven Mental Health Clinic); or through outreach from the mobile crisis service or the Outreach & Engagement Project.
No one over the age of 18 is denied screening, crisis intervention, or emergency care.
To receive continued care, the individual must be 18 or older, and be a resident of Catchment Area 7 (New Haven, Hamden, Woodbridge and Bethany).
An individual is eligible for care if he/she is indigent or considered among the working poor, has no entitlements or has unmanaged Medicaid and/or Medicare; or receives income and/or medical benefits from State Administered General Assistance (SAGA).
Individuals are not denied care based on race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.
If an individual has private insurance, entitlements with specified benefits, or other financial resources, he/she may be assisted in seeking treatment elsewhere.
Although no one is denied service at CMHC because of inability to pay, subsequent reimbursement may be expected.
At CMHC, individuals are active participants in their own recovery, rather than passive recipients of care. They are actively involved in shaping the goals of their care, in choosing the means to work toward these goals, and in sharing responsibility for achieving them. They are also encouraged to engage their family and friends in these plans and goals to gain further support in their recovery.
