The Mental Health Association of Westchester (MHA) is pleased to announce an award of $4 million over four years from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to further advance the vital work of its existing Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) services. An innovative integrated clinic model, MHA’s CCBHC improves access to care by addressing financial and logistical barriers and delivers a network of services to support a range of needs for targeted populations.
Positive growth as a result of navigating challenges and building resilience is a basic tenet of the behavioral health care world. It’s the journey through which we support clients; it’s how clinicians and other staff flourish in their professions; and it’s how we, as organizations, adapt.
