About us

The Behavioral Health Contractors’ Association (BHCA) is a County-wide network of community-based, non-profit organizations providing mental health and substance use prevention, treatment, recovery, and supportive transitional housing services to children, adolescents and adults, under contract with Santa Clara County’s Department of Mental Health and Department of Alcohol & Drug Services.

BHCA proactively supports the continued development of a mental health and drug and alcohol system that meets the needs of Santa Clara County residents through client centered services that are focused on wellness, prevention and recovery.  Services should be accessible, culturally and linguistically competent, cost effective, and able to help people affected by mental illness and substance use to have the same opportunities to fully participate in life as others in our community.
