Announcement from the National Council for Mental wellbeing
Today, National Council released its’ CCBHC state-level impact report entitled, Transforming State Behavioral Health Systems: Findings from the impact of CCBHC implementation. In the Report, state officials from the eight CCBHC demonstration states explore how adoption of the CCBHC model has transformed their substance use and mental health care delivery systems, including building workforce capacity and community-and state-level infrastructure needed for lowered costs and improved outcomes.
There are currently 42 states with CCBHC-Expansion grantees, an initial support for providers that may help build on or toward the state-based CCBHC model. Of those states, ten states are now part of the CCBHC demonstration, three states passed legislation to develop the CCBHC model, and multiple other states are in conversations on the CCBHC model as well. This includes the alignment of the CCBHC model and 988, the National Suicide Prevention hotline.
National Council is available for any discussions on the CCBHC model at your convenience. For more information, please visit their CCBHC Success Center website.
