Integral Care has been accepted into the National Council Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) Mentorship Program. Integral Care will have the opportunity to participate in a newly established model of peer-to-peer sharing. The Mentorship Program runs from August 2020 through the end of July 2021. The National Council is deeply invested in the success of all CCBHCs and created the program to:
- Foster peer-to-peer sharing and relationships amongst CCBHCs
- Establish a mechanism for CCBHCs to exchange ideas and crowdsource solutions
- Elevate the best practices and lessons learned from established CCBHCs
Integral Care was paired with two centers in Texas who are in the early stages of CCBHC implementation. Over the next year, we aim to share knowledge and offer supportive guidance as these centers launch new programs and policies aimed at improving care. In addition to 1:1 mentoring, our staff can participate in quarterly workshops and an online community dedicated to crowdsourcing solutions. According to the National Council, Integral Care’s mentorship is directly contributing to the success and sustainability of the model in Texas and beyond. Overall, the program serves to share knowledge, provide support, and spread solidarity for the CCBHC model.
CCBHCs provide a comprehensive collection of services needed to create access, stabilize people in crisis and provide the necessary treatment for those with the most serious, complex mental illnesses and substance use disorders. CCBHCs integrate additional services to ensure an approach to health care that emphasizes recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care and physical-behavioral health integration.
