Southeast Mental Health Service’s CCBHC Implementation Project serves a rural and frontier region of southeast Colorado, including the counties of Baca, Bent, Crowley, Kiowa, Otero and Prowers. This project will increase CCBHC access to 700 unduplicated individuals over the 2-year grant period. The region covers a total of 9,600 square miles with an aggregate population of 47,304. The residents are poorer, less educated, and have a higher incidence of disease compared to other Coloradans. Suicide and opioid overdose are serious concerns. This project addresses workforce shortage issues by implementing mobile, in-home and online technology-based crisis and counseling solutions. It enhances cultural competence by providing training in the areas of Rural Stress, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Veterans and Active Duty Military, and LGBTQIA individuals. It enhances care coordination and improves care transitions by developing an EHR portal for primary care providers to discuss and review treatment plans.
