In 2013, the D.C. Behavioral Health Association celebrates its thirtieth anniversary, and the fiftieth anniversary of the Community Mental Health Act.
For a generation, we have 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.
Learn more about our members' work and the D.C. Behavioral Health Association's activities through the links on the left-hand side of this page.
The D.C. Behavioral Health Association is the policy voice for providers to support adopting and implementing these successful changes to community-based behavioral health services for the city's low-income population.
