Since 1967, the Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council (CBHC) has been proud to represent Colorado’s statewide network of community mental health providers. In 2001, CBHC expanded its membership by adding the Behavioral Health Organizations who manage the Medicaid mental health program. Over the years our members have built an extensive network of community partnerships and have made a significant contribution to health across Colorado. CBHC has worked closely with community partners, government agencies, the legislature, and other stakeholders to create integrated care solutions so that individuals and families with multiple and complex behavioral health needs are effectively served through seamless, coordinated, and integrated healthcare.
Guided by these values, CBHC has taken another important step in building its capacity to promote the integration of mental health and substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery. Colorado’s Managed Service Organizations (MSOs) have joined CBHC as members to bring their experience, perspective, and commitment to our effort to advocate for policies that support the whole health of individuals and families. At a time when significant changes are underway to transform and improve health and healthcare in our state, we celebrate the MSO’s commitment to join us in a unified effort to improve behavioral health and healthcare in Colorado.
This fall, as CBHC prepares to commemorate 45 years of dedicated service to Colorado’s community behavioral healthcare providers, we are extremely proud and excited to introduce our newest members:
