Community Based Services
Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC)
What is a CCBHC?
CCBHC is a care plan that provides a full range of mental health and substance use disorder services to individuals with complex needs. Typically, a person with mental illness must go through several different agencies to receive all of these services, which can be over complicated. In contrast, each CCBHC clinic is an all-in-one provider of an array of services to individuals in need of care.
What services are provided?
A Care Coordinator will ensure that these services are being properly utilized and integrated. Services available include:
24-hour mobile crisis teams
Screening, assessment and diagnosis
Treatment planning and outpatient mental health services
Primary care screening and monitoring
Outpatient chemical dependency services
Peer, adult, adolescent, family counseling services
Connections to other providers/systems such as criminal justice, foster care and more
Armed forces and veteran care
CCBHC takes a person-centered and family-centered approach that looks at the physical, behavioral health and social service needs of the individual, since they influence the well-being of a person as a whole. It provides a comprehensive set of services that promote recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care and a focus on whole health to serve individuals in need of care. CCBHC serves adults, adolescents and children, as well as placing a special emphasis on active and veteran military care.
What are your rights?
In addition to the rights you have based on the licensure/certification of the program you receive services from, you also have the right to:
A free choice of organizations providing behavioral health services
Person-centered and coordinated care
Refuse a specific CCBHC service
We urge you to communicate with other health care providers you are receiving services from that you are in a CCBHC and that we want to coordinate our services with theirs to give you the best service possible.
