What is the CCBHC Mentorship Program?

As the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) model is increasingly adopted across the country, it is critical to elevate the best practices and lessons learned of experienced CCBHCs. Time and again, we hear from those early in their journey asking, “How have others approached this?” The CCBHC Mentorship Program is designed to promote innovation and collaboration amongst CCBHCs through access to a broad community of peers.

The National Council is deeply invested in the success of all CCBHCs and invites you to join us in our efforts to ensure the sustainability of the model as a mentor to a new CCBHC.

Through the mentorship program, newly established CCBHCs are paired with experienced CCBHCs to support them along the early stages of meeting CCBHCs criteria and navigating transformational organizational change.

The mentorship program promotes community engagement through paired mentor teams for one-to-one connection, quarterly program convenings and a virtual platform for peer-sharing and crowdsourcing solutions for your questions along the way.
