Becoming a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic, or CCBHC, is a milestone for any behavioral health provider. It’s a long process, and getting there requires a great deal of technical support.
A Growing Partnership
Qualifacts is proud to recognize more than a dozen of its clients that have been named to the 2020 expansion class of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs). Qualifacts is now supporting more than 30 CCBHC providers across 12 different states, giving the company a deep understanding of the program.
The CCBHC designation, which is conferred by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), means that a provider will offer comprehensive individual and family services in an integrated, holistic manner with open access to care delivering services in the community and in clinics. To qualify for CCBHC status, a provider must provide community access to a variety of services, including 24/7 crisis intervention for:
- individuals who have serious mental illness or substance abuse disorders
- children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance
- individuals with co-occurring mental and substance disorders
Fiscal Year 2020 CCBHC Expansion Grants included $200 million in annually appropriated funding and $250 million in emergency COVID-19 funding, according to SAMHSA.
“The CCBHC program is an important federal designation that allows behavioral health providers to expand their services while proving the quality of their important work for the people they serve,” says David Klements, President and CEO. “Qualifacts is proud to work with a growing number of program participants and is focused on helping all of our customers improve and demonstrate the quality of their services.”
