CMHA hosted the agency’s 2014 Annual Meeting at The Baltic on November 18.
More than 125 staff, community leaders, funders and friends joined us, along with special guest Dr. William Petit. 

For seven years, Hovin Underwriting Partners of Simsbury has generously brightened back-to-school time for needy children by donating backpacks filled with school supplies to Community Mental Health Affiliates’ (CMHA) Child & Family Services program in New Britain, which provides behavioral health care for families who often cannot afford to pay for treatment.

CMHA received $25,000 from the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain to support our Child & Family Services program in New Britain. The funds will help the program incorporate sensory-based treatment approaches and support the development of a sensory integration room as part of CMHA’s holistic therapeutic approach to treating children and adolescents who struggle with trauma symptoms.
