We believe everyone should have access to quality behavioral health care.

The County Behavioral Health Directors Association of California (CBHDA) is a nonprofit advocacy association representing the behavioral health directors from each of California’s 58 counties, as well as two cities (Berkeley and Tri-City). We believe everyone should have access to quality behavioral health care. Through our advocacy, lobbying and education efforts, we promote the reduction of individual and community problems related to unaddressed behavioral health issues. We regularly bring together behavioral health professionals to discuss ways we can inform public policy and improve the delivery of behavioral health services. And we support efforts to help the most vulnerable among us – children with serious emotional challenges, adults with serious mental disorders, and people living with substance use disorders.
