Empowering communities through integrated healthcare

Mental illness, when combined with chronic physical health conditions, affects all areas of a person’s life and may result in complex challenges to overcome. In such instances, Centerstone’s Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) use a coordinated, whole-person model of care to help individuals improve overall health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.

CCBHCs strive to provide essential services directly or through partnerships. These include:

  • Crisis Services
  • Treatment Planning
  • Screening, Assessment, Diagnosis & Risk Assessment
  • Outpatient Mental Health & Substance Use Services
  • Targeted Case Management
  • Outpatient Primary Care Screening and Monitoring
  • Community-Based Mental Health Care for Veterans
  • Peer, Family Support & Counselor Services
  • Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services

Journey to Integrated Healthcare

At Centerstone, the process of transforming clinic locations to CCBHCs began in 2018 through funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This funding allows our awarded clinics in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, and Tennessee to provide patient- and family-centered, recovery-oriented, wellness-focused and integrated primary and behavioral care for both adults and children. Evidence shows that integrating behavioral and physical healthcare and prevention services through care coordination can lead to better outcomes. Currently, Centerstone operates 7 federally-funded CCBHCs across these four states.

Each state clinic location has been able to utilize SAMHSA funds to expand access to care and improve clinic infrastructure and staffing. In Tennessee, Medication Assisted Treatment services were expanded; In Indiana, a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) was set up for integration of primary health care needs; In Illinois, intensive case management was implemented to assist clients with serious mental illness; And in Florida, a suicide pathway and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for insomnia was implemented.

Centerstone’s comprehensive array of evidence-based practices creates access, stabilizes people in crisis, and provides treatment and support services emphasizing recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care, and primary-behavioral health integration.

Understanding the History and Future of CCBHCs

The main objective of receiving federal CCBHC funding is to work towards meeting all CCBHC criteria outlined by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), while also engaging state-wide stakeholders to build support for funding the CCBHC model at the state-level. Once a state attains buy-in from stakeholders and becomes a demonstration, time-limited enhanced federal funding is provided to help states identify pathways for sustaining the model once this funding expires.

  • CCBHC Cross-Site Analysis Packet

    This document includes analyses of all data collected by Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) from 2018 through 2022. Use the table of contents to delve into specific topics covered. Here you will find National Outcomes Data, information on diagnoses, telehealth utilization, hospital and emergency room data collected, and further recommendations based on our findings.

  • CCBHC Cross-Site Recommendations Summary

    This document summarizes the recommendations also located in the main cross-site packet. Recommendations for clinical improvement and further areas to explore were made based on experiences collecting and analyzing data from the EHR, populations found to be underrepresented in the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC) sample, and client outcomes observed throughout the evaluation.

From understanding the core differences between CCBHCs and traditional clinics to witnessing the remarkable outcomes and effectiveness of this model, our videos serve as a rich resource for knowledge and insights.

CCHBC vs Community Mental Health Center
Learn about the unique aspects of the CCBHC model, the types of comprehensives services CCBHCs are required to offer, and how it addresses challenges experienced by traditional community mental health centers (CMHCs).
Cross-site CCBHC Outcomes
Now that you know about the CCBHC model, learn about how sustaining whole-person care influenced clients’ experiences and outcomes across all four clinics, including their mental health, substance use, and overall quality of life after six months of treatment.
Special Populations & Social Determinants of Health
The CCBHC model aims to provide equitable, affordable, timely, and quality community behavioral health services to everyone regardless of their background or ability to pay. This emphasizes the importance of practicing cultural competence and addressing social determinants of health during treatment, so we provide a breakdown of special populations served by our CCBHC clinics.
Sustainability & Improving Care
Remember how the CCBHC model allows clinics to provide services according to their community’s unique needs? Here we provide the history behind the CCBHC initiative and how each clinic is working towards implementing and sustaining equitable and comprehensive care.

Please note videos were created based on 2018-2022 CCBHCs. Since 2022, we have 4 new CCBHCs that we will add (where relevant) to these videos in the near future.

One pagers will be updated once the next Cross-Site Analysis is completed between 2026-2027.

If any new advancement and/or discoveries are made prior to 2026-2027, we will be sure to share here!

  • CCBHC Success Center

    The National Council for Mental Wellbeing’s Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) Success Center serves as a resourceful hub offering data, implementation support, and advocacy to bolster the CCBHC initiative.

Centerstone’s Bradenton Clinic in Bradenton, Florida received its first two-year CCBHC-E grant in 2020 funded by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Currently, using the CCBHC Improvement and Advancement Grant awarded in 2022, the clinic continues to transform community behavioral health systems and provide comprehensive, integrated, coordinated, and person-centered behavioral health care. Additionally, in October 2023, Centerstone received a Planning, Development, and Implementation Grant to create a CCBHC in Fort Myers, Florida which will help fill key service gaps in the area and target crisis needs.

Services are made available to any individual, children, adolescents, and adults, seeking care for a mental and/or substance use disorder, in addition to individuals experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. Through CCBHC funding, the Bradenton Clinic has increased capacity by hiring more providers. This includes nursing staff at the walk-in center to aid in addressing any physical health care needs. Identified as an area of need in our 2023 community needs assessment, the clinic staff work to better serve groups facing unique health disparities such as individuals with co-occurring disorders, individuals from minority groups, and individuals with limited English proficiency.

The Centerstone clinic in Alton, Illinois received its first CCBHC expansion grant in 2018. The second CCBHC Improvement and Advancement (IA) Grant was awarded in 2020 and ended in May of 2023. In October 2023, the Alton Clinic received another CCBHC IA grant which will support services until 2027. Additionally in October 2023, the Carbondale Clinic received their first Planning, Development, and Implementation (PDI) grant which will allow this clinic location to expand services and better serve the local community’s behavioral health care needs.

Our implementation and expansion is focused on ICM – Intensive Case Management, which employs peer specialist, counselors, and clinicians that work to support clients in accomplishing long-term case goals and outcomes over relatively short periods of time.

CCBHC funding also supported the creation of telehealth rooms in our facility prior to the COVID-19 pandemic which was instrumental to our readiness for virtual care. We started experimenting with using telehealth therapists at the start of the pandemic and have found much success utilizing this mode of care delivery when necessary.

Case management, individual and group wellness coaching, and peer support services not covered by insurance have also been supported by the CCBHC grant. Our MAIN goal has been working with the State Mental Health Association to become a demonstration state which will ensure continued success of the communities and clients in which we serve.

While working on developing a state-funded CCBHC model, Centerstone will continue expanding and making improvements to services through the CCBHC IA Grant at the Alton Clinic and CCBHC PDI grant at the Carbondale Clinic through 2027.

The Centerstone Clinic in Bloomington, Indiana received its first CCBHC expansion grant in 2018, its second in 2020, and now utilizes the CCBHC-IA (Improvement and Advancement) Grant, which was awarded in 2022 and provides funding through 2026.

Through the three CCBHC SAMHSA grants over the past 5 years, the Bloomington clinic has facilitated a shift toward integrative health care (in-line with CCBHC requirements), which we, as an organization, call whole health care. CCBHC grant-funded staff have enabled the delivery of whole health care services at Centerstone through the provision of health coaching, life skills, health education (individual and groups), and general health assessments & reassessments for all clients. CCBHC grant-funded staff support our walk-in clinic (Same Day Access) through the provision of intake assessments, therapy, case management, medical record access/coordination, and integrated care coordination (both internally and externally), especially for those who are un-/under-insured. Additionally, CCBHC grant funds are used to provide hospital inpatient intake assessments, as well as intake assessments for probation & problem-solving court clients. At the administrative level, CCBHC grant staff are engaged in numerous whole health workgroups and projects, which are supporting and guiding Centerstone of Indiana in the implementation and delivery of whole health care.

The Harriett Cohn Clinic in Clarksville, Tennessee received its first CCBHC expansion grant in 2020. The second CCBHC Improvement and Advancement Grant was rewarded in 2022 and is ongoing through 2026. In 2023, the Tullahoma Clinic located in Tullahoma, Tennessee received their first Planning, Development, and Implementation grant which will be ongoing until 2027.

The CCBHC project has supported the implementation and expansion of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) at the facility by employing full-time providers and nurses. MAT services are offered in-person and via telehealth. Case management, individual and group wellness coaching, and peer support services not covered by insurance have also been supported by the CCBHC grant. Current funds are being used to expand and sustain substance use treatment and follow-up care post-rehab, including Intensive Outpatient (IOP) group therapy, particularly for underinsured populations.
