October Staff Spotlight



Multidimensional Family Therapy Team

The inaugural 2021 Chairman's Team Award was presented to the New Britain & Waterbury MDFT Teams this month. They work with some of the most difficult youth and family cases at CMHA, but despite the pandemic and other challenges, they continue to help our children and families succeed, even being recognized by DCF for their stellar outcomes. Thank you all for your dedication and passion!
