A Message from CBH

Colonial Behavioral Health stands in support of our community and every individual who deserves a life free of prejudice and injustice. We believe every person has an equal right to be treated with dignity and respect as an individual. We understand that inequalities, racism, and economic disparities exist in the world today.

CBH is aware of the trauma and stress that may be caused from these inequities and recognizes that these wounds have recently been exposed in extraordinarily painful ways. We will always support unity over division, support healing, and be available to provide needed services and support.
