Public Comment Requested on Criteria for Community Clinics

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is seeking public comment on the draft criteria for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics. These clinics will focus on improving outcomes by increasing access to community-based behavioral health care, expanding the availability and array of services, and improving the quality of care delivered to people with mental and/or substance use disorders.

SAMHSA hosted a national listening session on November 12, 2014, followed by a 2-week public comment period to seek input on the development of criteria to certify the clinics. Numerous comments were received that contributed to the development of a set of draft certification criteria.
