Since 1967, the Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council (CBHC) has served as the statewide membership association for Colorado’s network of community behavioral health providers. CBHC members are the backbone of Colorado’s behavioral health safety net. They serve Coloradans in every county across the state with community-based services that promote well-being and good health across populations, and that are tailored to the unique needs of each community.
CBHC members include:
17 Community Mental Health Centers

The CMHCs also work closely with the law enforcement, judicial, education, and public health systems to ensure access to care for anyone living with a mental health or substance use disorder.

CMHCs hold the value that all individuals deserve access to necessary services where they live, work, and grow.
