Hope Starts Here: CCBHC
Family & Children’s Services (F&CS) is a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC).
WHY DOES CCBHC MATTER TO ME?
The CCCBHC approach helps clients with serious mental health, multiple chronic medical conditions and complex social support needs to achieve the best outcomes. The cornerstone of this model is based on whole-person treatment with a team of providers who specialize in each area of need.

MORE ABOUT CCBHC: The cornerstone of a CCBHC is to enlarge services beyond mental health and co-occurring substance use treatment to fully address a variety of other pressing client needs including multiple chronic medical conditions, medication adherence, health and wellness, justice involvement, complex social support and basic needs. Clients with high needs and histories of frequent emergency department visits and psychiatric hospitalizations will receive greater intensity and specialty services to facilitate continuity of care through engagement in outpatient and home-based services instead of episodic care in a hospital setting.
This CCBHC approach has been found to optimize recovery outcomes for clients with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use conditions; limit psychiatric hospitalizations; reduce criminal justice involvement; heighten engagement with primary care that improves medical health outcomes; increase participation in outpatient mental health treatment; improve rates of community connection, employment, education, and housing; and increase adoption of health and wellness activities. involvement, and coordination with school, DHS, and other service providers. The CCBHC approach provides rapid access to same day care through multiple ways: phone, telehealth, mobile crisis, offices, home-based, school-based and community-based.
In a CCBHC, children with serious emotional disturbance conditions receive wrap-around services in addition to mental health treatment. These services encompass behavioral, medical, social needs, and caregiver and family. Five key components of the treatment model include:
1. Comprehensive outpatient mental health clinical care, crisis services, and substance abuse treatment
2. Medication adherence programs to enhance recovery
3. Transitional services from inpatient to outpatient treatment to bridge care.
4. Intensive case management to address complex social support and basic needs
5. Primary care coordination to improve medical health outcomes
