Network180 Awarded Grant for 
Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic

Network180 is excited to announce that we are a recipient of a SAMHSA grant for the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) project. It is a $2 million grant with the possibility of being renewed a second year at an additional $2 million. This grant is a result of the passage of the Excellence in Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Act by Senator Stabenow (D-MI) and Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) and grants supporting CCBHC were awarded to 18 Community Mental Health Agencies in Michigan. 

The CCBHC project will allow Network180 to expand its services to individuals of all ages in Kent County struggling with a mental illness, substance use disorder, or co-occurring disorder, including Veterans and those whose symptoms are considered mild to moderate in severity. Beverly Ryskamp, Network180’s Chief Operating Officer, explains,

The Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) allows us to serve anyone in need of mental health or substance use disorder services regardless of ability pay or insurance type. Before the grant we were only able to serve individuals coming into our Access Center who have Medicaid or no health insurance.  

In addition to allowing Network180 to serve more Kent County residents, the grant provides funding for outpatient therapy as well as mobile crisis intervention for adults, which will be a first in Kent County. By expanding the range of services available to the community, Network180 will be able to help more individuals before their symptoms reach crisis level. The grant will substantially bolster the community’s efforts to prevent behavioral health crises from resulting in incarceration, emergency department visits or inpatient hospitalization.

Network180 is pleased to be partnering with several providers for this CCBHC project. Cherry Health will be providing primary care services as well as telehealth for Suboxone treatment. Arbor Circle, Hope Network, InterAct and Pine Rest will provide targeted case management, Assertive Community Treatment, psychiatric rehabilitation, social support services and community recovery supports. Through this grant and these partnerships, Network180 plans to serve an additional 4000 people over the life of the project. 

Network180’s participation in this project, along with our collaboration with community partners, will contribute to the transformation of behavioral health and substance use disorder services in Kent County by creating a more accessible and inclusive system of care.
