CCBHC Consulting

October 1, 2021

Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) are revolutionizing behavioral health care and strengthening services for those who need them most.

As specially designated clinics, CCBHCs are provided with the funding and framework to offer a comprehensive range of mental health and substance use services regardless of someone’s diagnosis or insurance status. The National Council’s team of expert consultants are ready to help your organization prepare to meet CCBHC requirements — as defined by SAMHSA or by your state — in finance, service delivery, and partner collaboration with a variety of customized consulting offerings.

“Our work with National Council prepared us well to fully implement the CCBHC standards in less than a year. Their guidance and understanding of the standards and their experience of working with other centers, helped to guide us in preparation and implementation within our center. This partnership was incredibly valuable to us.”

“The National Council has been a major help getting our CCBHC program off the ground. Their technical assistance and expertise has helped us implement CCBHCs in more than 40 counties in our state!”
