About

The Florida Behavioral Health Association (FBHA) is the result of a recent merger between two organizations: the Florida Council for Community Mental Health and the Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association. Both associations have a long history of advocating on behalf of behavioral health treatment providers.

FBHA is now the state’s largest trade association representing community treatment providers with a united voice. FBHA serves as a trusted source of information. We advance policy initiatives and we advocate for better behavioral health for all Floridians.

Our mission is to:

1. Inform – We provide training, education, and awareness on mental illness and substance use disorders.

2. Innovate – We provide opportunities for members of our community and the state to network, share best practices, and develop innovative ideas for treating Floridians.

3. Influence – We use our united voice to advocate at the Florida Capitol for better behavioral health prevention, treatment, and recovery services
