The Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) is dedicated to strengthening the health, resiliency, and recovery of Coloradans through quality and effective behavioral health prevention, early intervention and treatment services. The DBH has established a set of values and guiding principles, which DBH utilizes to fulfill its role (summary version and more detailed version) as the single state authority for behavioral health services.
DBH operates within a logic model, has a working strategic plan and an organization chart profiling DBH administration. DBH staff are responsible for a wide array of programs, services, and mission-critical functions including, but not limited to, licensing, designation and regulatory standards, policy development, contracting for service delivery, consultation, training, and technical assistance, interagency collaborations and partnerships, data collection, reporting and analysis, evaluation, and grants management.
DBH operates through receipt and expenditure of Federal, State and local dollars. (Financial information and resources)
