Community Behavioral Health Grants Component
The Community Behavioral Health Grants Component
provides funding through grants or contracts to local nonprofit
or local government agencies to provide an array of outpatient and
residential community mental health services.
The services provided by these agencies include:
Emergency outpatient and residential crisis/respite services; outpatient,
residential treatment and rehabilitation services for adults with
severe mental illness; the same for youths who are severely emotionally
disturbed; and outpatient treatment services for adults and youth
with emotional disturbances.
Funding is provided for persons with mild to relatively
severe mental and emotional disorders that may produce a temporary
inability to meet vocational and social demands, but are neither
immediately life-threatening nor place the person at risk of hospitalization.
This population includes persons in the third legislatively-mandated
priority - those with moderate to severe disorders who have
no access to private care due to geographic isolation or economic
hardship. This population also includes persons
in the fourth priority - those with mild to moderate disorders
who are not likely to need hospitalization in the foreseeable future.
These services include:
- Assessment and evaluation
- Individual, group and family therapy
- Case management (limited)
