The State of Mental Health in West Virginia

West Virginia currently ranks 36th in the United States for mental healthcare. The West Virginia Department for Health & Human Services - Bureau for Behavioral Health (BBH)  is responsible for the reformation of their current mental healthcare system, and for providing readily accessible services that are tailored to meet the needs of each individual, family, and community. It’s up to the BBH to provide the resources necessary to build resilience in their communities. The BBH determines the standard of care that all West Virginia residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist.

Currently, the BBH is working on establishing a strong integrative care model, while improving on accessibility in all phases of mental illness, from prevention, to treatment and recovery.
