Webinar replay: developing a strategy for the certified community behavioral health clinic state demonstration RFP

This webinar was held on October 6, 2022. 

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act offers states new funding for expansion of the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) Demonstration. The next CCBHC Planning Grant RFP for states is anticipated to be released in the fall of 2022. In this webinar, the first of a two-part series, experts from HMA and the National Council for Mental Wellbeing discussed:

  • The CCBHC Demonstration opportunity and what the evidence for the model demonstrates
  • How states have used the CCBHC model as a transformational opportunity that can help behavioral health care systems achieve broader health quality and access goals
  • Lessons New York and Michigan have learned from their CCBHC efforts, including key takeaways from the application and implementation processes
