The Behavioral Health Collaborative (BHC) is a cross-sector partnership of DuPage County leaders that works collaboratively to identify and implement data-driven strategies that improve access and quality of behavioral health services for all DuPage County residents, advocate for aligning resources and funding, and educate the community about the signs and symptoms of mental illness.
The BHC is currently focused on developing and improving processes to serve individuals with mental health needs, with a specific focus towards the following goals:
Raise community awareness of available options for mental health crisis response
Strengthen the youth mental health services system in DuPage County
Improve the coordination of co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder treatment throughout the County
For more information about the goals of the Behavioral Health Collaborative, refer to our 2023-25 Action Plan. Follow along with our work towards these objectives with our Progress Tracker, updated quarterly.
BHC newsletters are released every three months to highlight the progress being made towards objectives and share relevant events. To join the circulation list for BHC newsletters and other emails, please email Scott Kaufmann. Past newsletters are linked below.
