Community Behavioral Health Network (CBHN)

Current behavioral health providers sub-contracted by the Geminus Community Behavioral Health Network (CBHN) are Regional Mental Health Center (RMHC) which two years ago represented two separate Lake County Community Mental Health Centers and The Villages of Indiana, Inc.

Regional Mental Health Center is a community mental health center with 34 facilities located in Lake County Indiana servicing Northwest Indiana and some statewide programs. The Villages of Indiana, Inc is a child serving agency with 20 offices located strategically throughout Indiana providing community-based services helping families help children.


CBHN Accreditation:

As a Managed Care (network) Provider (MCP) with the Division of Mental Health and Addictions, CBHN is required to maintain its CARF behavioral health provider network accreditation.

Regional Mental Health Center is accredited by the Joint Commission (JC) and The Villages by the Council on Accreditation (COA). This maintains the CBHN commitment to subcontract only with DMHA-approved accreditation organizations. CBHN Members/clients must meet eligibility criteria set by CBHN’s DMHA contract. Each individual Member must be enrolled into the data system provided by DMHA along with completion of the age and disability appropriate clinical assessment tool provided by DMHA. Of the four disability groups funded by DMHA Villages only serves the SED population and RMHC serves all four populations.

1. chronically addicted persons of all ages (CA),

2. children who are seriously emotionally disturbed (SED),

3. adults who are seriously mentally ill (SMI),

4. individuals with gambling addictions (GAM)

Some enrolled Members may have more than one of these disabilities.
