Health Affairs Pathways Podcast: Certified Behavioral Health Clinics and Mental Health Policy

April 11, 2022

The shortage of beds in mental health facilities and long waitlists for care have compounded the mental health crisis that was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the latest episode of the Health Affairs Pathways Podcast, hosts Sania Ali and Avni Kulkarni explore the role that certified behavioral health clinics can play in addressing this crisis.

According to Health Affairs Pathways, “CCBHCs are one-stop shops for integrated mental health care that are tailoring treatment to fit you rather than fitting yourself into treatment. Sania and Avni speak with two CCBHC executives hailing from two very different parts of the country: New York City and Nowata, Oklahoma. Guests on this episode include Yaberci Perez-Cubillan from Acacia Network and Josh Cantwell from Grand Lake Mental Health Center.”
