The National Council for Mental Wellbeing has released its annual CCBHC Impact Report, underscoring CCBHCs’ transformational ability to expand access to care, alleviate workforce challenges within the behavioral health space and provide a blueprint for the future of mental health and substance use care nationwide. Coming on the heels of nationwide expansion through the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the National Council’s report, conducted by The Harris Poll, finds the CCBHC model helps clinics on average serve more than 900 more people per clinic than prior to implementation, a 23% increase. CCBHCs are able to offer access to services much faster than the national average wait time and provide access to certain forms of substance use disorder (SUD) treatment at vastly higher rates than non-CCBHCs.
