New SAMHSA Grants: Bringing CCBHCs Nationwide

Hope held in hands with green awareness ribbon

There’s a new model in behavioral health care, one that is alleviating decades-old challenges that have led to a crisis in providing access to mental health and addiction treatment.

As an integrated and sustainably-financed model for care delivery, Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC) are transforming communities across the country. CCBHCs:

  • Ensure access to integrated, evidence-based addiction and mental health services
  • Provide 24/7 crisis response and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for addiction
  • Meet stringent criteria regarding timeliness of access, quality reporting, staffing and coordination with social services, criminal justice and education systems
  • Receive funding to support expanding services to fully meet community care needs
