A Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) is a specially-designated clinic that provides a comprehensive range of mental health and substance use services. CCBHCs provide a comprehensive array of services needed to create access, stabilize people in crisis, and provide the necessary treatment for those with the most serious, complex mental illnesses and substance use disorders. CCBHCs integrate additional services to ensure an approach to health care that emphasizes recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care, and physical behavioral health integration. These services include, but are not limited to:

  • Provision of 24/7/365 crisis care
  • On-site care coordination
  • Integrated health care
  • Tailored care for active-duty military and veterans
