Time to Organize: The Children's Mental Health Campaign is Alive and Well

I'm visiting Boystown in Omaha today;  more on that later.  For now, a reminder from the Children's Mental Health Campaign:

Please Join Us:
CMHC Supporters Meeting - Tues, July 14
Please join us for the next Children's Mental Health Campaign supporters meeting on Tuesday, July 14 from 9:30-11AM in the 9th floor conference room at 30 Winter Street.  
We have many things to discuss at this meeting, including the final FY 2010 State Budget, progress of the collateral contacts  bill, and the implementation of Rosie D.  services. If you have any questions or suggestions for agenda items, please contact Matt Noyes at or 617-275-2939.  

Action Needed:
Ask Legislature to Override Rosie D. Veto

Last week, Governor Patrick released his line item vetoes of the Legislature's FY 2010 State Budget.  
Among these vetoes was a $2.3 million reduction in funding for implementation of the Children's Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI), also known as Rosie D.  This veto threatens the effectiveness of the community based services that were rolled out on July 1.  Please ask your networks to contact their State Representatives and State Senators and ask them to override Governor Patrick's veto of CBHI / Rosie D. funding.
