Strengthening the Behavioral Health Workforce

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, CBHC had concerns over the shrinking behavioral health workforce. We all know that it has become an even greater issue in our state. CBHC is committed to finding ways to expand our workforce.

Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs)

A Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic federal model is designed to ensure access to coordinated comprehensive behavioral health care. CCBHCs must meet a set of national standards and transparency requirements. CBHC believes that CCBHCs will offer better access to care and outcomes

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. There are numerous modules for different age groups and specialty populations. CBHC is dedicated to bringing this course to as many Coloradans as possible.
