Juvenile Justice & Behavioral Health Partnerships

NC Juvenile Behavioral Health Partnerships (JJBH Partnerships, also known as Juvenile Justice Substance Abuse Mental Health Partnerships)

NC JJBH Partnerships is a statewide initiative to address the mental health and substance use needs of young persons and families in contact with the juvenile justice system. UNCG works with 21 local teams across North Carolina who work to increase access to effective, family-centered services and supports for juvenile justice-involved youth with substance use and/or mental health challenges. This System of Care based initiative involves the Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization (LME/MCO), the local Department of Public Safety, and Service Providers.
