Certified Community Behavioral Health Center (CCBHC) Extension

Jan 27, 2021

We’re thrilled to announce that our funding to continue our work as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Center (CCBHC) has recently been extended for three more years! This program is critical to our work to provide care that is integrated into the community and provides a one-stop shop for mental health care at varying stages and needs. People Incorporated’s Central Access team provides care that is coordinated across platforms, working towards solutions for many of our most vulnerable clients, so that no one falls through the cracks.

“You look at the whole person and meet them where they are at and deliver the services we think are right for their needs with fewer barriers,” says Jill Wiedemann-West, People Incorporated’s CEO.

This program also ensures that People Incorporated has the resources to provide treatment that combines a holistic, multi-faceted approach to improving mental health.

“When you go in for open-heart surgery, they have a cardiologist, a physical therapist, a nutritionist all there and you pay in one lump-sum payment for your treatment. We want to be the place people go to coordinate all of the care they need,” says Jim Olson, People Incorporated’s CFO.
