Availability of Services
Life can be confusing when you need to find behavioral health services. Fayette County Behavioral Health Administration (FCBHA) is here to make sure you can find the best behavioral health programs and services to meet your individual and family needs.
If you or someone you love has a diagnosis of an Intellectual/Developmental Disability or Mental Health, or if your child (birth to age 3) does not seem to be attaining normal milestones you can call us at 724-430-1370 and ask for help.
Health Plan Coverage
You can also look at the back of your Medical Card; if your health plan has a Behavioral Health Component, it will be listed there and you should call them for the most appropriate options for your specific health plan.
FCBHA works with Service Providers throughout Fayette County and the western region to meet the needs of the community and its residents. It is our mission to make sure that appropriate programs, services, and supports are available to help you along the way to recovery and wellness.
