    ​Maryland’s Behavioral Health Authorities

    Each Maryland jurisdiction has at least one behavioral health agency that coordinates directly with the Behavioral Health Administration (BHA).

    CSAs are the designated county or multicounty authority that is responsible for planning, managing, and monitoring publicly funded mental health services. 
    LAAs are the designated county or multicounty authority that is responsible for planning, managing, and monitoring publicly funded substance-related and addictive disorder services. 
    LBHAs are the designated county or multicounty authority that is responsible for planning, managing, and monitoring publicly funded mental health, substance-related, and addictive disorder services.
