In July 2022, the NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) awarded SouthLight Healthcare a three-year grant to increase access to and improve the quality of behavioral health services in Wake County.
SouthLight was selected as one of five recipients across the state to become a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC). This grant will allow SouthLight to expand access to comprehensive mental health and substance use services to individuals and families in our community, regardless of ability to pay or insurance status.
The path to becoming a CCBHC requires SouthLight to provide, or contract to provide, a detailed set of services, and to comply with stringent CCBHC standards of care and practice. In addition, SouthLight is required to collect and report data in an effort to increase access and improve the quality of community-based mental health and substance use services.
