The purpose of this program is to help to transform community behavioral health systems and provide comprehensive, coordinated behavioral health care by establishing new CCBHC programs. CCBHCs provide person- and family-centered integrated services. The intent of the CCBHC-PDI grant program is to (a) assist organizations in the planning for and development and implementation of a CCBHC that meets the CCBHC Certification Criteria (PDF | 755 KB), (b) provide a comprehensive range of outreach, screening, assessment, treatment, care coordination, and recovery supports based on a needs assessment that aligns with the CCBHC Certification Criteria, and (c) support recovery from mental illness and/or substance use disorders (SUD) by providing access to high-quality mental health and SUD services, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. This includes any individual with a mental or substance use disorder who seeks care, including those with serious mental illness (SMI), substance use disorder (SUD) including opioid use; children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance (SED); individuals with co-occurring mental and substance disorders (COD); and individuals experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. SAMHSA expects that applicants will include a focus on groups facing health disparities, as identified in the community needs assessment in the population of focus.
