In today’s society, there is a stigma surrounding mental disorders and behavioral health that can prevent those in need from seeking help. In 1951, the Child Guidance Clinic of Greater Waterbury began a program offering behavioral health services to children. Seventeen years later, in the same region of Connecticut, the Morris Foundation was formed as a group home for recovering alcoholics. In 2011, these two organizations decided to merge in order to better serve the region and more effectively provide behavioral health services to a larger number of patients, becoming Wellmore Behavioral Health.
