RALEIGH, N.C. – The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has contracted with the Network of Care to bring its Behavioral Health program to the mental-health and substance-use community. 

Taking advantage of ARPA funding, the state plans to implement the Network of Care to provide access to:

  1. A comprehensive directory of services, including all basic needs, social determinants of health, treatments, recovery, and support
  2. Educational resources with more than 30,000 peer-reviewed articles
  3. Resources and support for the Opioid Crisis
  4. Resources and support for Suicide Prevention
  5. Resources and support for Disaster Relief
  6. Care Coordination tools, and much more

The Network of Care is the largest government-sponsored, local behavioral health network in the country. The program is an approved expenditure under SAMHSA’s Mental Health Block Grant and recommended to all grantees within the guidelines of ARPA. (Please see page 2, bullet #7)

The Network of Care for Behavioral Health program is expected to launch in North Carolina in spring of 2024.
