Community Partnerships

Community and health system partnerships are at the core of the CCBHC demonstration program. This means you need to be ready for partnerships not just with the usual suspects—such as hospitals, primary care clinics, or ACOs—but also with nontraditional partners such as law enforcement agencies, schools, veterans’ organizations, and many more. CCBHCs may provide and bill for services offered outside the four walls of their clinic, giving you and community partners a multitude of new opportunities to reach individuals where they live, work, and play. Are you poised to take advantage of these new opportunities? Explore our resources and consulting options below to learn more.
