The County Behavioral Health Directors Association of California (CBHDA) is a non profit advocacy association representing the behavioral health directors from each of California’s 58 counties, as well as two cities (Berkeley and Tri-City).
CBHDA is actively involved in social justice and behavioral health-related public policy development across all levels of the government. From analysis to advocacy, CBHDA is constantly evaluating the “real world” implications of public policy development on local behavioral health authorities and the communities they serve.
