The Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council (CBHC) works throughout the year with legislators, policymakers, and community stakeholders to strengthen the behavioral health system and improve the health and well-being of all Coloradans. From January to May, when Colorado’s General Assembly is in session, CBHC’s policy team evaluates each bill introduced to examine the potential impact to the community-based behavioral health system. It’s a vital part of our mission in service to our 28 members and the Coloradans they care for, and one that cannot be fulfilled without considerable support. The positions that CBHC takes on legislation are developed with thoughtful input by members and, in some cases, reinforced by the testimony of leaders in our member organizations.
