At Barry County Community Mental Health Authority, commonly referred to as BCCMHA, we provide mental health and substance abuse services to residents of Barry County, in an accessible and affordable manner. Our goal is to provide treatment, recovery, and hope for individuals in the most effective, least restrictive level of care, and to create the best possible environment for independence and wellness for people living with mental illnesses, developmental disabilities, and or substance use disorders.

As a provider of comprehensive mental health services, our continuum of care extends to all ages, with a multitude of services to include both outpatient, home-based, school, and community-based programs. We follow a recovery model which emphasizes and supports each individual's potential for mental wellness, empowerment, and social inclusion.

BCCMHA offers services for families, children, adults, and seniors who are seeking support in a positive, caring, encouraging environment. We are accredited by Commission of Accreditation of Rehabilitaton Facilities (CARF) and we are proud to be a member of Venture Behavorial Health.
