Advocacy - Education - Collaboration
The California Council of Community Behavioral Health Agencies (CBHA) is a statewide association of non-profit agencies dedicated to providing mental health and substance use disorder programs and services to those in need across our state. We are dedicated to the proposition that the people of California deserve a rational and comprehensive community-based behavioral health system that is adequately funded to serve those in need. We are the voice of our agencies at the state Capitol, and with state agencies, and the federal government. We advocate on issues pertaining to physical health, mental health, housing, social services, education, substance abuse services and vocational rehabilitation. Our goal is to ensure that federal, state, and county programs can support integrated healthcare services for children, youth, adults and older adults.
