Welcome to BHLI

Who We Are

In early 2003, Baltimore Mental Health Systems, Inc, the local mental health authority for Baltimore City, convened a number of leaders in the academic community to address the issues related to workforce development in community behavioral health , at all levels and across disciplines, and the gap between research findings, policy and practice. Out of these discussions, a non-profit corporation, named the Behavioral Health Leadership Institute (BHLI) was formed. The Board of Directors is comprised of members from several academic institutions in the field as well as individuals who are active in the fields of community mental health or substance use disorders. Disciplines represented include physicians, nurse practitioners, law, social work and public health. The Institute concept is a unique approach to improving the quality of care. It offers a model that integrates service delivery, research, work force development, education and public policy with program implementation.
