Our Mission and Vision
CBHA promotes comprehensive, responsive, and integrated service systems by enhancing the ability of nonprofit member agencies to provide behavioral health services that empower the people we serve to lead full and productive lives.
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, state agencies, and the federal government. Our purpose is to ensure that federal, state, and county programs can support integrated healthcare services for people of all ages.
We achieve this purpose through:
- Shaping and leading public policy;
- Advocating for needed legislation and funding;
- Creating a forum for the exchange of information and expertise; and
- Working with all relevant stakeholders.
Our focus continues to be on increasing the appropriate funding and oversight for the community behavioral health system.
