Welcome to BCCMHA
At Barry County Community Mental Health Authority (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, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and / or substance use disorders.
Important Changes to Some Agency Services
BCCMHA will be switching to a new Electronic Medical Record system August 1st. As part of this change, we will now be offering appointment reminders by text and phone. If you have provided us your phone number, you will receive a text during the first week of August asking you how you want to receive appointment reminders. If you have concerns about this, or would like to opt out, please let your clinician/casemanager know. Please be patient with us as we make this change. Thank you!

Accessible and Affordable Mental Health Care
As a provider of comprehensive mental health services, our continuum of care extends to all ages, with a multitude of services including 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. Services are provided in a person-centered, family-driven and youth-guided manner. Individuals, families and youth have an empowered, decision-making role in how their care is delivered.
