For over 30 years, the D.C. Behavioral Health Association has sought to expand and improve community-based behavioral health services through policy advocacy and staff development.  Our 34 members are the providers who offer services ranging from substance abuse and mental health treatment to housing supports for adults or children in foster care.  Every year, our members serve over 18,000 D.C. residents -- helping them find peace, recovery and resilience.
