The CBHI Vision and Mission
Massachusetts places families and children at the center of our state’s service delivery system and maintains a coordinated system of behavioral health services to meet their needs. Policies, financing, management, and delivery of publicly funded behavioral health services are integrated so that families can and use appropriate services. This system is intended to ensure that all families feel welcomed and respected, receiving services that meet their needs as the families themselves define them.
The mission of the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI) is to ensure that children with MassHealth who have significant behavioral, emotional, and mental health needs and their families get the services they need for success in home, school, community, and throughout life. This is done by strengthening, expanding, and integrating Massachusetts behavioral health services into a comprehensive, community-based system of care. CBHI partners with child- and family-serving state agencies, providers, and payers to ensure that services:
- meet the individual needs of the child and family;
- are easy for families to find and access; and
- make families feel welcomed and respected.
