BHN began as a partnership clinic with the Dept. of Mental Health and over the years has evolved into a comprehensive, community behavioral health center. DMH remains a primary funding source, yet BHN has been successful in diversifying its funding sources through contracting with other state agencies, managed care organizations and health care plans and insurers.




BHN is an organization whose current structure has evolved from a series of corporate mergers and affiliations. In 1992, three Springfield-based agencies and one Agawam-based organization merged to create the comprehensiveness that serves as our core programs. BHN then affiliated with the Center for Human Development to create the region’s largest human service and behavioral health organization.



This evolution of BHN from a small partnership agency to a comprehensive mental health organization is demonstration of our attempts to build on community partnerships, promote integration and efficiency of services and maintain a commitment to mission.
