Program Advisory Committees

The SUD Program Advisory Committee guides BHARP’s Executive Committee in matters pertaining to substance use disorder.  It works collaboratively, proactively, and creatively with system partners to improve behavioral health through deepening our understanding of substance use disorder and investigating innovative approaches to reduce its consequences for members, and their families.

The Children’s Program Advisory Committee’s mission is to promote, develop and sustain a strong and accessible array of clinical services and supports to the youth and families of the BHARP member counties.

The purpose of the MH/ID Committee is to provide a platform for sharing of resources, ideas, and coordination and delivery of services for individuals identified as having both a developmental disability and a mental health diagnosis. This unique population often accesses services across multiple service delivery systems.

The expert management of the HealthChoices contracts across PA has led to cost efficiencies resulting in reinvestment funds. These funds are used to develop and/or expand services for HealthChoices members. BHARP works collaboratively with the Managed Care Organization to categorize priorities aimed at identifying county needs and determining ways to plan for reinvestment projects.

The BHARP Network Committee is comprised of representatives from our 24 Member Counties, and the contracted BH-MCO (Behavioral Health Managed Care Organization). Their goal is to ensure there is a recovery-focused, culturally competent, and stable network by predicting and responding to emergent, urgent, and ongoing network needs. The Network will be member-focused to include special populations and will encompass a high quality, cost-effective continuum of care.
