Since 1957, Bridges' mental health and addiction recovery programs and services have helped adults, children and families move toward healing, recovery and renewal.
As the state-designated Local Mental Health Authority for Milford, Orange and West Haven and the surrounding communities, Bridges offers outpatient services to support individuals with severe and prolonged mental illness, behavioral issues and addiction problems. [ more ]
For 30 years caring people have come out to support Bridges Healthcare's main fundraising event, Folks on Spokes Ride for Mental Health in September. This year, with so much still unknown about the Coronavirus and the COVID-19 pandemic, the ride and its accompanying Step Forward Memorial Walk, will take place a little differently, with participants choosing to ride or walk anytime during the week of Sept. 13 through Sept. 20. There will be virtual kick-off and finish line gatherings to celebrate the continued effort by the community to raise awareness and funds for mental health and substance use disorder treatment.

Bridges Healthcare Community Impact Report 2019
The theme of our 2019 Impact Report, "Bringing Recovery into the Community" reflects the way we reach people "where they are." Our services help people in the environment where they spend time and face many of their challenges. We work with adults at various community sites, and children, teens and their families at school and in their homes.
We thank all of our donors for helping us to continue to impact the lives of those who need us most!
