Director of Human Resources
McCall Behavioral Health Network is the story of two nonprofit organizations that served communities in western Connecticut for 50 plus years before coming together to form one of the most progressive behavioral health organizations in western Connecticut. In July of 2022, Central Naugatuck Valley Help, Inc., and the McCall Center for Behavioral Health finalized a merger to form the McCall Behavioral Health Network.
The McCall Behavioral Health Network now provides much needed care to thousands of residents in western Connecticut who have struggled or continue to struggle with addiction and mental health disorders. This care is delivered in a compassionate and caring way that aligns with the organization’s mission to inspire hope and promote wellness and healing through a continuum of behavioral health services — prevention, treatment, recovery support, and community engagement.
The McCall Behavioral Health Network is a strong and committed advocate for the needs of the communities and individuals that it serves both regionally and from across the state. The network is committed to being a multi-cultural, anti-oppression presence in the communities that it serves, as well as within all departments and programs within the organization.
As a CARF-accredited behavioral health provider, McCall offers residential and outpatient treatment, mental health group homes and services, adolescent services, family services, medication assisted treatment, and pharmaceutical services in Torrington and Waterbury. Understanding that mental health and substance use disorders also take a toll on individuals physical health, the McCall team has cultivated close relationships with primary care partners in order to ensure that their clients’ medical needs are also met. Finally, McCall is moving beyond just clinically treating individuals in the communities in which it serves by placing more of an emphasis on wellness services as a link to its overall model of care.
This rapidly growing $23m organization is headquartered in Torrington Connecticut and is blessed with having a wonderfully supportive Board and leadership team committed to quality care. With over 200 professionals serving Connecticut, McCall assisted more than 1400 individuals in 2022 through its diverse set of programs and maintains a close relationship with the Torrington and Waterbury communities as well as the State of Connecticut. It is noteworthy that leaderships’ commitment to providing excellent care to clients parallels their commitment to support and care for one another as part of a family. This genuine caring for staff is actually palpable.
This is a wonderful opportunity for an experienced Human Resources professional to join McCall’s incredibly talented Leadership Team to further develop and enhance a sophisticated system to attract and retain staff, and to ensure that systems and processes are in place to build on an already strong and highly regarded system that is further positioning itself to be successful in Connecticut’s rapidly expanding health and behavioral healthcare environment. Reporting directly to the CEO, the Director of Human Resources will have the unique opportunity of making an immediate and lasting impact on an already highly supportive culture in this organization.
