When a serious behavioral, emotional or mental health problem threatens a child’s happiness and well-being, you may not have all the answers. Through the Children’s Behavioral Health Collaborative (CBHC), you’ll find compassionate, effective help for the challenges your family is facing.
The Collaborative consists of five established Palm Beach County agencies, including NAMI PBC.
The CBHC takes behavioral and mental health services to a new level in Palm Beach County by:
- Making it easier for families to get the help their children need
- Providing services and supports to help children succeed in school, at home and in the community
- Ensuring children and their families have access to an array of services to meet their individual needs
- Giving families voice and choice in setting goals, creating their support team, and the best courses of action to help them be successful
- Improving communication and cooperation among parents, children and other family members
The Collaborative will work with you to develop a plan, identify and access services, and get the help you need to meet your family’s goals. The CBHC will help your family navigate the sometimes complex service systems to find the right services for a child.
