Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) Services
Cummins Behavioral Health is proud to be a federally-designated Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic in Hendricks County. We offer CCBHC services to any individual who needs them at our Avon office, regardless of the person’s county of residence or ability to pay for services.
What is a CCBHC?
The CCBHC designation was created by the Excellence in Mental Health Act of 2013 to describe organizations providing comprehensive services for individuals with severe and complex mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The CCBHC model is founded on person-centered treatment, care coordination and integration, evidence-based practice, and prompt access to care, including 24/7 crisis response.
All CCBHCs must provide a specific array of services to the populations they serve. Several of these services—including intensive outpatient mental health and substance use services, patient-centered treatment planning, peer support services, and services for members of the armed forces—are available at all Cummins offices in our five counties of operation.
However, several of our CCBHC services are only available in Hendricks County at this time.
Which services are unique to Hendricks County?
The following programs and services are only available in Hendricks County as part of our CCBHC offerings:
Primary Medical Care
Visitors to our Avon office may receive outpatient primary medical care services in addition to mental health and substance use services. These services are provided through a partnership with WindRose Health Network.
In addition to routine health check-ups, screenings, monitoring, and testing, individuals may also fill any needed medication prescriptions at our on-site Genoa Healthcare Pharmacy.
Mobile Crisis Services
Our Mobile Crisis Team is trained to intervene and assist individuals experiencing a behavioral health or substance use crisis at the place of incidence, without requiring individuals to travel to a care facility. They can work with community organizations, schools, first responders, and law enforcement to help individuals receive appropriate follow-up care after a crisis.
Mobile Crisis Services are an expansion of our 24-hour, telephone-based crisis intervention services, which are accessible in all of our counties of operation.
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
Assertive Community Treatment is a high-intensity service for individuals who have not achieved desired treatment outcomes from other behavioral health services. This may include persons struggling with serious mental illness, substance use, or chronic primary medical conditions like diabetes, obesity, or hypertension.
ACT services are provided by a multidisciplinary team that may consist of psychiatrists, nurses, therapists, skills trainers, employment specialists, and substance use specialists. These team members work together to provide care when and where it’s needed, at any time of day or any location.
Cummins employs specialized staff who can assist with navigating the Cummins care system as well as other medical and behavioral health systems. These Care Coordinators can work with individuals at our office, in their homes, or at the offices of health service providers to ensure they receive the care they need.
Care Coordination services can be especially helpful for individuals who must manage several behavioral health or chronic medical conditions at the same time.
