The McCall Center for Behavioral Health provides comprehensive substance abuse and mental health treatment to more than 1,000 clients a year. The organization helps alleviate the pain and suffering caused by substance abuse through integrated in-patient and out-patient recovery support.
Through a recent grant from the Carlton D. Fyler and Jenny R. Fyler Fund, a fund of the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, the McCall Center for Behaviorial Health provided its SuperKids program to campers aged 6-14 at Northwestern Connecticut YMCA’s Rising Star Camp.
The 8-week SuperKids program teaches coping skills to children who have experienced poverty, trauma, family substance abuse and other challenges.
“SuperKids is part of the overall goal of the Rising Star Camp, building on a child’s strength, encouraging them to look at the parts of their lives, their behaviors, and their choices that they have some control over and providing skills for them to navigate those aspects in healthy, happy and productive ways,” said Sara Osborne of McCall Center for Behavioral Health.
