Kennebec Behavioral Health

2023 Goals

Counseling services for a variety of mental health issues is one of our most subscriber services. This has been true since the beginning of our agency back in 1960. However, the COVID pandemic thrust us into the tele-video arena for some of our clients. We have learned that for many people, this is the preferred option and have honed our skills, technology and training to create a Tele-Counseling Program. In the next year, KBH will expand its tele-counseling initiative to create a permanent hybrid model approach to care. As part of a SAMHSA grant, KBH has implemented a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) model of care. FY 2023 goals include improving intake and enrollment care coordination and client outcome monitoring. Initiatives include hiring new care coordinators and veterans’ liaison while also creating and introducing new trainings. To meet these goals, it is imperative to have a state of the art, functional, adaptable and secure electronic health record. One of the organization’s priorities has been to consistently invest in our IT infrastructure with its medical record platform. In 2022, KBH will be certifying this software and will be able to have an inter-operable system that can share securely health records of our clients with other health providers.
