Project BRAVO

Project BRAVO (Behavioral Health Redesign for Access, Value and Outcomes) consists of the implementation of fully integrated behavioral health services that provide a full continuum of care to Medicaid members. This comprehensive system will focus on access to services that are: high quality, evidence-based, trauma informed and cost effective.

The implementation of these new services under Project BRAVO will begin July 1, 2021 with Mental Health Partial Hospitalization Program (MH-PHP), Mental Health Intensive Outpatient (MH-IOP) and Assertive Community Treatment (ACT). Multisystemic Therapy, Functional Family Therapy, Mobile Crisis, Community Stabilization, 23-hour Observation and Residential Crisis Stabilization services will follow, with implementation on December 1, 2021.
