What is a CCBHC?
A CCBHC is a clinic that aims to combine mental health and substance use disorder services delivery and coordinate care across healthcare settings and providers.
As a CCBHC, ISK will consistently use evidence-based (proven or predictable) practices and increase access to high-quality care. For CCBHC information from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, follow this link: CCBHC Demonstration
What are the benefits of a CCBHC?
CCBHCs are held to a high standard of care. They must:
- Help people improve their health by making it easier to get into treatment.
- Keep people from going into the hospital when they don’t need hospital care.
- Make services available no matter your ability to pay or where you live.
- Offer 24/7 mobile crisis response.
- Integrate evidence-based addiction and mental health services, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for addiction.
- Provide high-quality care, with timely access, quality reporting, and staffing and coordination of social services, criminal justice, and education systems.
- Build better relationships between hospitals and community health care providers.
What services does a CCBHC provide?
CCBHCs must provide nine core services to promote physical and mental healthcare integration for anyone served within the CCBHC. They are:
- Crisis mental health services: 24-hour mobile crisis teams, emergency crisis intervention services, and crisis stabilization.
- Screening, assessment, and diagnosis.
- Patient-centered treatment planning or similar processes. This includes risk assessment and crisis planning.
- Outpatient mental health and substance use disorder services.
- Outpatient clinic primary care screening. This includes a review of key health indicators and health risks.
- Targeted case management.
- Psychiatric rehabilitation services.
- Peer support, counselor services, and family supports.
- Intensive, community-based mental healthcare for members of the armed forces and veterans, particularly those members and veterans located in rural areas.
