BHB Logo

The Region IV Behavioral Health Board is a governmental entity established by the Idaho legislature in 2014 to advise Idaho’s behavioral health authority, identify gaps, and promote improvements to the delivery of integrated services for behavioral health in Idaho.

The Board promotes and supports prevention, intervention, recovery and resiliency for individuals and families in need. It is composed of 22 stakeholders, advocates, and professionals across the continuum of care representing constituents in Ada, Boise, Elmore, and Valley Counties.

The business of the R4 BHB is primarily conducted through monthly meetings and the work of their three committees.

Respect – We value all perspectives
Progressive – We move forward
Integrity – We do the right thing
