Welcome to the new

Florida Behavioral Health Association (FBHA)

FBHA is a new version of two organizations – Florida Council for Community Mental Health and Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association – that have a long history of advocating on behalf of behavioral health treatment providers.

FBHA is the state’s largest trade association representing community treatment providers with a united voice. FBHA serves as a trusted source of information, advances policy initiatives, and advocates for better behavioral health for all Floridians.


InformWe provide training, education, and awareness on mental illness and substance use disorders. 


InnovateWe provide opportunities for members of our community and the state to network, share best practices, and develop innovative ideas for treating Floridians.


InfluenceWe use our united voice to advocate at the Florida Capitol for better behavioral health prevention, treatment, and recovery services.
