After working together in various partnerships for 15 years, Birmingham Group Health Services and Harbor Health Services, two nonprofit organizations that provided mental health and substance abuse services in Greater New Haven, Conn., merged in 2012 to form BHcare. The merger brought the organizations together to create a cohesive approach to prevention and treatment of behavioral health, addiction, and domestic violence and enabled greater programmatic scope and scale. A challenge grant from the SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration supported expenses related to the merger.
