Behavioral Health Recovery Services Project

The Behavioral Health Recovery Services Project is a public-private effort to increase the number and quality of culturally responsive behavioral health recovery services programs throughout California that are tailored to local needs.

Under contract with the California Department of Health Care Services, The Center at Sierra Health Foundation will award sub-contracts to organizations across the state to provide behavioral health recovery services to individuals experiencing severe mental illness, serious emotional disturbance and substance use disorder. The Center will provide administrative support and technical assistance to these organizations throughout the contract period.

Community Engagement

The project’s first phase will include a robust community and stakeholder engagement process to better understand:

  • The current landscape of behavioral health recovery-oriented services
  • Opportunities to expand the definition of behavioral health recovery-oriented services
  • Future needs of behavioral health recovery-oriented services statewide

The Center will use key learnings from this process to inform the project’s approach to services, as well as the selection of funded partners to implement work in communities.

Funding

We will post funding opportunities on this webpage and through electronic notification through our e-newsletter.
