Newport Mental Health

Our Impact

Meeting People Where They Are

Newport Mental Health was the first Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) in Rhode Island. As a CCBHC, Newport Mental Health is transforming behavioral health and healthcare for the 85,000 residents of Newport County and is leading the way for improved access to care across the State of Rhode Island.  

Core components of the CCBHC model are providing immediate walk-in access to care, active community outreach, and 24/7 mobile crisis response. Through these services, Newport Mental Health ensures that professional therapists, prescribers, and peer recovery specialists are available in the moment of need to de-escalate a crisis and connect individuals to services.
