Adolescent Services

CMHC works closely with clinical and custodial staff at York Correctional Institution and Manson Youth Institution to continuously review and improve health care services provided to adolescents incarcerated in the State of Connecticut.

CMHC and DOC continue to foster increased partnerships with state and community agencies, most notably the Office of the Child Advocate, Department of Children and Families, and the Court Support Services Division to meet the continuously evolving needs of this population with the goal of increased continuity of care system-wide.

Current initiatives include policy and procedure development focused on this special population, on-site quality improvement audits and monitoring, juvenile interviews, and staff training in adolescent growth and development.
