NEW Behavioral Health Consortium

NEW Behavioral Health Consortium

C4 is proud to announce that on Monday, April 4, 2016, the Cook County Health and Hospital Systems (CCHHS), has rolled out a bold new initiative called The Behavioral Health Consortium-- a comprehensive program created to address community-based behavioral health care across the county, through its Medicaid health plan, CountyCare.
As lead agent, Community Counseling Centers of Chicago (C4) is part of this conglomerate of six highly experienced organizations currently providing community-based behavioral health care in Cook County. The Behavioral Health Consortium is comprised of Community Counseling Centers of Chicago (C4), Family Guidance Centers, Inc., Habilitative Systems, Inc. (HSI), Human Resource Development Institute, Inc. (HRDI), Metropolitan Family Services and the South Suburban Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse.
Providers in the CountyCare network will have 24/7/356 access to a single point of contact when in need of services for a patient. Each call to the consortium will be triaged and appropriately referred to one of the community-based mental health or substance abuse providers. “This strategy has the potential to transform the delivery of behavioral health services. Nowhere else in the country are behavioral health providers teaming up to address this national epidemic and caring for patients in this collaborative way.” Stated Chris Carroll, interim Executive Director of C4.
