GILLETTE, Wyo. — A near million-dollar grant will help Campbell County Health’s Behavioral Health Services meet the increasing demand for mental health and substance abuse services in the region, the healthcare organization announced this week. 

The grant was for $965,000 and comes through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in support of a transformative project to expand and enhance Campbell County Medical Group’s Behavioral Health Services. 

According to CCMG Director Matt Miller, this grant signifies a pivotal moment for the healthcare organization and its journey to becoming a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic, or CCBHC, which enables it to provide a more comprehensive range of services to the community. 

“This grant empowers us to meet the increasing demand for mental health and substance use services in Campbell County and the greater northeastern Wyoming region,” Miller said in an Oct. 3 statement. 

Over four years, the project has the primary objective of helping CCH Behavioral Health Services add new services and meet the rigorous criteria to become a CCBHC. Such clinics are known for their comprehensive range of services including crisis services; screening, assessment, and diagnosis; patient-centered treatment planning; outpatient mental health and substance use services; and intensive community-based methal health services for veterans and armed forces members, per CCH. 

“Our community listed mental health services as one of the most pressing needs in our Community Health Needs Assessment,” Miller said. “Becoming a CCBHC is one of the many ways we are addressing that need.”

Per CCH, the healthcare organization looks forward to working diligently over the project period to enhance its behavioral health services and, ultimately, improve the overall well-being of northeast Wyoming residents.
