Broward’s public behavioral health system is under the jurisdiction of the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF). DCF privatized its service system through the development and contractual relationships with local Managing Entities to provide the administration, management, support and oversight of the State and federally funded behavioral health services. In 2011, DCF designated the Broward Behavioral Health Coalition, Inc. (BBHC) as Broward’s local Managing Entity, which is responsible for the contracting, monitoring, clinical quality oversight and performance improvement of the DCF/State funded behavioral health services.
BBHC provides a comprehensive system of care for substance use, mental health, and co-occurring disorders for individuals in Broward County. As a non-profit organization, BBHC also manages local and national grants to develop evidence-based practices and practice improvement for providers and persons served. BBHC contracts with Concordia Behavioral Health to provide services related to BBHC’s network.
