More from the CBHI

To: All Minority Providers and Youth/Family-Serving Organizations in Communities of Color

You are cordially invited to a briefing and discussion about The Future of Public Children’s Mental Health Care in Massachusetts including opportunities to become a provider of new MassHealth services

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) is in the midst of a major transformation of its children’s mental health system, sparked in part by the Rosie D. Medicaid lawsuit, and fueled by Governor Patrick’s commitment to the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative(CBHI), whose goal is to develop an integrated system of care for children with serious emotional disturbance or behavioral health needs. As youth/family- serving organizations, your involvement and leadership is essential to the success of this initiative. This meeting is part of a series of provider and family meetings being held across the Commonwealth.
