Getting Access to CMBHS


For Local CMBHS Administrators

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) mental health and substance abuse service providers that are required by contract to use Clinical Management for Behavioral Health Services (CMBHS) are also required to have a Local CMBHS Administrator to set-up and support their organization’s ongoing use of the application.


Persons designated by their organization to be the Local CMBHS Administrator should contact the CMBHS Help Desk at 1-866-806-7806 to begin the set-up process for their organization.

For Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Provider Staff and Contractors

Provider staff and contractors that will be using CMBHS must get access through their Local CMBHS administrator. The Local CMBHS administrator will set up an account for each new CMBHS user, and provide the new user with a system generated User ID and temporary password to log in to CMBHS for the first time.


When the new user logs in, a message will appear, informing them that they must create a new password. After CLICKING OK on the message, the user will be taken to the change password page.
