NASMHPD report outlines roles of SBHAs: State behavioral health authorities (SBHAs) in all 50 states, four territories, and the District of Columbia are responsible for the behavioral health needs of nearly seven million people and for the $37 billion public behavioral health service delivery system. A report from the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) provides a comprehensive review of the roles, responsibilities, and coordinating efforts undertaken by the SBHAs. It is intended to inform and guide executive, legislative, and judicial decision makers at all levels of government, provider organizations, and other stakeholders in regard to the role, scope of authority, and expertise of SBHAs. The report describes key roles in several areas: manage and coordinate behavioral health public policy, public safety, and public welfare; manage and coordinate financing and coverage; prioritize funding related to nonmedical services; and manage, improve, and coordinate quality of care and delivery of services. The 73-page report, Too Significant to Fail: The Importance of State Behavioral Health Agencies in the Daily Lives of Americans With Mental Illness, for Their Families, and for Their Communities, is available on the NASMHPD Web site at www.nasmhpd.org/docs/publications/Too%20Significant%20To%20Fail.pdf.
