The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s HealthChoices program and the creation of Community Behavioral Health (CBH) in February 1997 provided all of us with the opportunity to improve and expand mental health and addiction services for people in need. Achieving this aim requires a partnership between those managing public resources and those whose clinical expertise and compassion can make a real difference to the lives of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens. In pursuing that goal, we remain committed to playing a key role in your success, as you have played a key role in ours.

CBH Mission

CBH will meet the behavioral health needs of the Philadelphia community by assuring access, quality, and fiscal accountability through being a high-performing, efficient, and nimble organization driven by quality, performance, and outcomes.

CBH Vision

We envision CBH as a diverse, innovative, and vibrant organization in which we are empowered to support wellness, resiliency, and recovery for all Philadelphians.
Please contact CBH Provider Relations if you require any assistance.
