Advocacy & Policy

CBHA leads the state behavioral health community in advocacy before the legislature and state agencies to increase funding for community behavioral health services, as well as ensure that state and county programs support integrated services for children with severe emotional disturbances, adults with serious mental illness, and individuals facing substance abuse disorders.

Advocacy Day

Held in Sacramento, we provide training and allow attendees to meet with state representatives to ensure a positive impact on policy decisions.

Advocacy Day is open to CBHA members (CEO, senior management, and staff members) who want to learn more about advocating for policies and legislation that affect everyday Californians. Advocacy Day is an opportunity to share our Policy Platform with elected California officials and speak to them about issues that matter to you!

Policy Forums

CBHA holds annual Policy Forums for its members. These forums provide an opportunity for members to engage directly with policy makers and meet with fellow agencies. The Forums provide a venue for learning and sharing as CBHA strategizes solutions for the challenges our member agencies face.
