The National Association of County and City Health Officials and CredibleMind Forge Partnership to Launch Nationwide Behavioral Health Program
Behavioral Health 360 Aims to Improve Mental Health in Our Communities
WASHINGTON, D.C., July 12, 2023 – The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the voice of the country’s nearly 3,000 local governmental health departments, today announced a partnership with CredibleMind, a leader in digital population-based mental health solutions. The partnership will create and launch Behavioral Health 360, a groundbreaking nationwide program designed to help combat the country’s mental health crisis. The program sets a national agenda that empowers local public health departments to improve the mental health status of their local communities. (Read the announcement on NACCHO.org)
Local public health leaders and staff work to protect and promote health and well-being for all people in their communities. Behavioral Health 360 will provide them with foundational tools to apply a public health approach to improve behavioral health, which has largely been underfunded and under-addressed. The program focuses on the prevention and early intervention of mental and substance use disorders, which can help reduce the disease burden and strain on the healthcare system. The local digital mental health deployment allows local health departments to mold the program based on their local needs, strategies, culture, demographics, and makeup.
CredibleMind’s behavioral health digital platforms will provide the technology backbone to broadly deploy Behavioral Health 360 in the United States. CredibleMind’s comprehensive platform supports individuals by providing evidence-based self-care for all mental health and wellbeing topics. The program will include a Virtual Community to connect public health leaders in sharing learnings and strategies to become data-driven and evidence-based in improving community mental health. Ongoing data and analytics will enable local health departments to gain better insights into their community’s mental health needs and track outcomes.
A preview of the Behavioral Health 360 Program was presented to local health department leaders at the NACCHO360 annual conference on July 12th in Denver.
The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) represents the nation’s nearly 3,000 local governmental health departments. These city, county, metropolitan, district, and tribal departments work every day to protect and promote health and well-being for all people in their communities.
