What Are the Regional Behavioral Health Policy Boards?
Nevada is divided into five distinct behavioral health regions that are overseen by Regional Behavioral Health Policy Boards. These boards, composed of community leaders, law enforcement, healthcare and treatment providers, social services, family and peer advocates, and others, bring diverse perspectives to the table, and facilitate collaboration focused on improving the behavioral health system in Nevada. A primary goal of the Regional Behavioral Health Policy Boards is to enable stakeholders to develop a shared understanding of the behavioral health issues facing each region, allowing for more effective planning and resource distribution across the state. Each Board is supported by a Regional Behavioral Health Coordinator position, funded through federal block grants and positioned with a county or community agency depending on the region.
