“Behavioral health” refers to both mental health and addictions. We use this term to describe our division because it is common for a person to need support for both.
The Behavioral Health Division has several roles. We are the local Community Mental Health Program (CMHP). We do system planning, crisis services and protective services. We also provide safety net services. This includes paying for treatment for people with no other resources. Staff also coordinate care for people who have complex needs. This helps people get services in the behavioral health system.
