South Central Behavioral Health Board

Idaho Code 39-3132 establishes a Behavioral Health Board (BHB) in each Department of Health and Welfare region. While Idaho formerly utilized Mental Health Boards and Regional Advisory Committees on Substance Abuse in an advisory capacity in each region, the introduction of stand-alone Regional Behavioral Health Boards is an important element in the transformation of Idaho’s Behavioral Health System of Care.
