Who We Are and What We Do

Since 1967, the Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council (CBHC) has served as the membership association for Colorado’s statewide system of community behavioral health providers. CBHC member organizations are the backbone of Colorado’s public behavioral health safety net, working to ensure all Coloradoans have access to quality, community-based services tailored to the unique needs and strengths of each community.

CBHC members provide or contract for direct services in a wide variety of settings in hundreds of service delivery sites across the state. In order to continue to provide care and enhance services, CBHC also acts as an advocacy organization at both the state and federal level to ensure the continuation and expansion of care across our state.
