Some of MSBH’s main functions include:

Systems Planning and Management - As a core service agency, MSBH is responsible for the development and implementation of community planning, management, and accountability mechanisms for the delivery of mental health services. MSBH conducts regular public mental health systems needs assessments, and develops an annual strategic Community Mental Health Plan. MSBH works closely with Local Addictions Authorities (LAAs) who are responsible for the local substance related health service system towards integrated behavioral health systems needs assessment and strategic planning processes which seeks to develop and expand the regional system of care and its capacity to meet the needs of the mid-shore community. This cooperative data collection, analysis and planning processes allow us as local entities to self-govern, and monitor and evaluate the local public behavioral health system.

Funds Allocation and Contract Monitoring - MSBH receives funding from Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and other state and national sources for services and recovery supports to meet needs identified, accomplish the goals of the strategic plan, and to serve our mission. Approximately 92% of the funding received is passed onto community providers throughout the mid-shore, and for some throughout the Eastern Shore, for programs related to mental health, substance use, peer support, crisis intervention, homelessness and affordable housing, sign language interpreters and other safety net provisions. MSBH works collaboratively with our partners, employing accountability and support mechanism to achieve success through the monitoring of contracts.

Systems Navigation - MSBH provides information and referral resources to consumers, their natural support systems, providers and community partners seeking behavioral health services and recovery supports for both mental health and substance use. Our staff offers a full continuum of support in responding to help calls, from simply providing a telephone number or basic information to problem solving complicated care need with multiple providers of services and supports. MSBH staff are there to assist with navigating a complicated system of care.
