Nonprofits sign behavioral health services alliance

November 05, 2015

Behavioral healthcare agency Community Health Resources (CHR) has announced a strategic alliance with Charter Oak Health Center Inc., a federally qualified health center in Hartford, to coordinate outpatient mental health and addiction services for adults, families and children in the Hartford region.

The agreement with Charter Oak marks the opening of CHR's first behavioral health clinic in a primary care practice in Hartford. Effective this week, CHR will manage and deliver all behavioral healthcare services at Charter Oak, offering a range of services for patients suffering from depression, anxiety disorders and more at Charter Oak's Grand Street office and satellites throughout Hartford.

Within the last year, CHR also launched the state's largest Behavioral Health Home to coordinate the healthcare needs of clients and started offering primary care services in its Manchester office. In addition, CHR is partnering with other primary care practices to provide behavioral health services.
