Leading the Way for 35 Years
The Community Behavioral Health Association of Maryland is the leading advocacy organization for Maryland's community-based behavioral health providers, including both mental health and addiction treatment.
The Community Behavioral Health Association (CBH) of Maryland is the professional association for Maryland's public community behavioral health providers - including both mental health and addiction treatment services. Our 105 members support the CBH vision of a high-quality system of public behavioral health care for individuals and families in Maryland. This is realized through a mission that advocates, educates, and affiliates members, stakeholders, and decision makers around the success and needs of the public behavioral health system. Our core values guide the everyday actions of the association and how we make decisions to best support the public behavioral health system in Maryland.
