The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will grant awards of up to $2 million each to 25 certified community behavioral health clinics (CCBHCs) or community-based behavioral health clinics that may not yet be certified but meet the certification criteria and can be certified within four months of award.  CCBHCs provide person- and family-centered services and are available in the 24 states that participated in the FY 2016 Planning Grants for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics. Participants in the CCBHC Expansion grant program must provide access to services for individuals with serious mental illness or substance use disorders, children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance, and individuals with co-occurring disorders.  It’s estimated that 18.7 percent of residents of rural counties had some sort of mental illness in 2016, which amounts to over 6.5 million people, a challenge exacerbated by limited access to care.
