Second Chance Behavioral Health Group
This group is designed for individuals with behavioral/mental health difficulties who are also dealing with difficulties related to incarceration or dealing with impacts from incarceration (parole, probation, housing, employment, family, mental health, etc.). Participants in different stages of reintegrating themselves in the community are welcomed.
**Referrals to this group are done through our Assessment Center, as clients will need a behavioral health assessment or updated ISP. These can be offered to any client at InterCommunity. All groups are via Zoom at this time.
The Transitions Clinic serves clients that have recently been released from incarceration and are referred to IC. The program takes a broad view of health and wellness, caring for both clients’ physical and behavioral health needs, and their social determinants of health.
This is the first longitudinal observational study focused on individuals, released from a prison, to understand the epidemiology of Cardiovascular Disease risk factors and modifiable mediators of CVD risk factor control.
Eligible participants can be from the community, from Halfway Houses, Sober Houses, Re-entry Welcome Center, and within Intercommunity’s client population. Eligibility criteria: individuals recently released from incarceration in the past 30 days, age 21 years an older, speak English, with one or more of the following CVD risk factors: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or obesity, and who plan to stay in the Hartford area for at least 12 months.
