Behavioral Health Partnership

DCF has statutory authority to provide for children's mental health services. The Department operates the Albert J. Solnit Center - North Campus and the Albert J. Solnit Center - South Campus. Through Connecticut Community KidCare, the Department also provides funding for a broad array of clinical and other services in the community, including outpatient clinics for children, therapeutic group homes, extended day treatment programs, emergency mobile psychiatric services, respite care, family advocacy, intensive case management and much more.   Children and families can access state-operated or state-funded community services directly or through referrals from providers in the behavioral health system. Services are provided on a sliding scale, and the majority of service providers are affiliated with a variety of health insurance plans.
