The NH Community Behavioral Health Association is an organization comprised of the ten community mental health centers throughout New Hampshire. These centers serve individuals in our state who are living with—and recovering from—mental illness and emotional disorders. The goal of the Association is to raise awareness about the crucial role played by community-based mental health centers in the provision of mental health services to those living with and recovering from mental illness in New Hampshire. In addition, the Association serves as an advocate for a strong mental health system across New Hampshire.
