Behavioral Health Reform - Provide Legislation Feedback

Over the last year and a half, the Governor’s Behavioral Health Taskforce met and compiled hundreds of recommendations to improve the current behavioral health system  in the state. One of the most comprehensive recommendations is to create a centralized office for behavioral health named the Behavioral Health Administration.

The first bill draft to create the Behavioral Health Administration was just released by the Department of Human Services along with a survey to collect feedback. We’d love for our membership to provide feedback on this proposal and you both read the proposed bill and provide feedback through the feedback survey. Thank you!
