Behavioral Health

Our Mission: "Partner with individuals, families and the community for recovery from serious mental health and substance abuse issues and to promote wellness, resiliency and hope."

Behavioral Health provides services for individuals in crisis, for youth, for adults and for alcohol and drug treatment.  Services are provided in Chico, Paradise, Oroville, Gridley and rural communities. We are here to Help.

Cultural Competence

Butte County Department of Behavioral Health values the rich diversity our organization and aspires always to demonstrate respect for the uniqueness of each individual’s beliefs, values, traditions, and behaviors. We encourage each contribution to the establishment of an open, inclusive environment that supports and empowers our employees.

The Inclusion by Design program is our department-wide effort to advance our diversity agenda. The development of Inclusion by Design initiatives is the shared responsibility of the Department’s Cultural Competence Advisory Team, the Ethnic Services Manager, the Leadership Team, and community experts.

Our commitment to diversity includes both the development of a diverse workforce and the delivery of culturally competent care to our clients. The first step to providing culturally competent care is to embrace our own diversity – to celebrate, enhance, and learn from it. Our diversity is also our strength.
