We Specialize in Conducting Needs Assessments for CCBHCs!

CCBHC Needs Assessment

A Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) is a specially-designated clinic that provides a comprehensive range of mental health and substance use services. CCBHCs serve anyone who walks through the door, regardless of their diagnosis and insurance status. CCBHCs integrate additional services to ensure an approach to health care that emphasizes recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care, and the holistic treatment of physical-behavioral health. CCBHC is also a new provider type in Medicaid, therefore, allowing CCBHCs to receive an enhanced Medicaid reimbursement rate based on their anticipated costs of expanding services to meet the needs of these complex populations.

Using the CCBHC model, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) developed and implemented a CCBHC Certification program (T-CCBHC). Community Centers that are pursuing CCBHC Certification are required to meet specific criteria, as evidenced through documentation, to demonstrate their readiness to operate as a CCBHC before attaining certification or to recertify. The criteria fall into six areas: 1) staffing, 2) availability and accessibility of services, 3) care coordination, 4) scope of services, 5) quality and other reporting, and 6) organizational authority. 


CCBHCs are required to conduct a community behavioral health needs assessment to identify community needs and determine program capacity to address the needs of the population being served. The findings of the needs assessment are used to guide staffing, availability and accessibility of services, and scope of services.

Important Notes

Jelly Nonprofit Consulting serves U.S.-based nonprofit organizations serving geographic regions in the U.S. These organizations must benefit the public and address identifiable current needs, demands, or problems in their service region. We do not provide services to for-profit businesses.

We do not provide services to religious organizations for religious purposes. We may provide services if the proposed project of the religious organization is non-sectarian, benefit a broad base of the community, and have a separate 501(c)(3) designation. The proposed program must not promote a specific religion/theology or discriminate against non-believers.

We are currently not in the position to donate in-kind services or provide pro-bono work. If now is not the right time considering your budget, let’s connect again when the time is right. We look forward to partnering with you in the future. In the meantime, we invite you to check out our 'RESOURCES' page on our website.
