Town Hall Meeting with California Behavioral Health Directors Association (CBHDA) on April 29, 2020



The County Behavioral Health Directors Association of California (CBHDA) is a nonprofit advocacy association representing the behavioral health directors from each of California’s 58 counties, as well as two cities (Berkeley and Tri-City). They believe everyone should have access to quality behavioral health care. Through advocacy, lobbying and education efforts, they promote the reduction of individual and community problems related to unaddressed behavioral health issues. They regularly bring together behavioral health professionals to discuss ways to inform public policy and improve the delivery of behavioral health services. They also support efforts to help the most vulnerable among us – children with serious emotional challenges, adults with serious mental disorders, and people living with substance use disorders.
