Behavioral Health

The initial advisory group for Behavioral Health is Advantage Behavioral Health Systems (ABHS). They are charged with identifying optimal use of funds to serve under-resourced residents of ACC who have behavioral health needs with behavioral health supports that provide long-term stability. Consideration should be given to supportive housing as well as alternatives to crisis intervention and incident resolution outside of the carceral system. To begin, ACCGov staff should coordinate with ABHS to determine if and how SPLOST 2020 Project #28 (Mental Health Recovery Facility) should be considered as a potential use of ARPA funds. Accordingly, the Manager is directed to hold a Mayor and Commission work session with ABHS to discuss the present feasibility of Project #28.
