Community behavioral health organizations (CBHOs) are the foundation of mental health service delivery in the United States for the more than 45 million adults aged eighteen or older with a mental disorder. This chapter discusses the vital role CBHOs play in providing both therapeutic and rehabilitative services to some of the nation's most vulnerable citizens. It outlines the origins of CBHOs within the publicly funded health care system in the United States, provides examples of available programs and services, and delineates the range of challenges faced by contemporary CBHOs as they strive to meet the needs of people with serious mental illnesses.
