OceanMHS receives their second SAMHSA Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) grant


Bayville— 2/3/2021 —Today, OceanMHS received the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic Expansion Grant. “When we became a CCBHC in 2018, it enabled OceanMHS to expand and deliver care in ways we never have before. Our vision to bring truly integrated healthcare to the residents of Ocean County was finally realized,” said James Cooney, CEO of OceanMHS. “Knowing that we can continue this care and develop new expansions and enhancements to treatment is truly an honor.” Cooney went on to say.
