What is a Behavioral Health Professional (BHP)?
A BHP is a dynamic professional who works 1:1 with children and young adults with a mental or behavioral health diagnosis, to help enrich their lives and achieve their goals. BHPs support their clients by practicing goals and working from a treatment plan, what we here at MAS Community Health like to call “The Map of Service.” Whether it’s working in the client’s home or within their communities, a BHP is there to guide, mentor, and encourage a client’s success.
While no college degree is required to become a Behavioral Health
Professional, MAS Community Health does require a high school
diploma or equivalent. We have found that individuals who
