Working together to improve the mental health and well-being of all of South Carolinians.

What is the SCBHC?

The South Carolina Behavioral Health Coalition (SCBHC) is a voluntary, multidisciplinary, long-term statewide partnership of both public and private organizations devoted to enhancing and improving access to a comprehensive system of behavioral health care. We are working together for families and individuals in need to provide robust behavioral health coverage, access, and coordination of services at the community level across South Carolina.

This website is dedicated to the documentation of the ongoing work of this coalition. It will serve as a communications hub for sharing the collective efforts towards improving behavioral healthcare as well as for achieving the mental health and well-being for all South Carolinians.

How the Coalition Works

The Coalition is structured based on three Priority Area Action Teams. Action Teams, led by a volunteer Chair and Co-Chair with area expertise, are responsible for establishing both short and long-term goals with a primary focus on identifying and disseminating actions based on the needs of individual communities. The Data Informatics and Analytics Team supports the three teams with data needs and performance metrics.
