CHD, a non-profit organization, delivers a broad array of critical social and mental health services to over 18,000 people each year right here in western Massachusetts and Connecticut.

CHD’s COVID-19 Critical Response Fund

At CHD we have been helping children, adults and families across western Mass and Connecticut for nearly 50 years. And now, as we respond to the local challenges of a global pandemic, we need your help. COVID-19 has brought a significant new financial burden for our organization, with escalating costs for staffing, personal protective equipment, and new technologies to support remote delivery of services. Your donation will help keep CHD strong and active in its commitment to our community.

Updated Service Information: COVID-19

CHD continues to provide essential services to meet community needs. In order to protect the health of our community and our team, some changes in services are taking place. If you are in need of services or have any questions please call 1-844-CHD-HELP.

CHD’s ‘Where You Are’ Telehealth Services

Those in need of services can now receive counseling and therapy from a licensed, highly trained clinician in their home or virtually any suitable location with Where You Are, our new remote mental-health support network.
