Adults

The mind and the body are one; people are whole. Wheeler's approach to your care is grounded in the belief that physical and mental health are interconnected. To achieve the best possible outcomes, we ensure the whole person is cared for within Wheeler's full continuum of primary care, dental and behavioral health care and in coordination with other services across our state.

Whole-Person Care Across the Lifespan

Wheeler has expanded the scope of its community health centers in Bristol, Hartford and New Britain to meet the health care needs of individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders.

Individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders are often reluctant to engage in primary care services and experience disparities in access to health care and health care outcomes. Many of the patients Wheeler currently serves from Hartford, New Britain and surrounding communities do not have a primary care physician, experience multiple co-morbid health disorders and are frequently seen in the emergency department. These patients have difficulty engaging in primary care through traditional channels. Their experience of stigma in health care settings and past exposure to trauma often create substantial barriers to care.
