Massachusetts health care — wonky, with a healthy dose of reality

Children’s Mental Health on the Move

Children’s Mental Health on the Move

September 9, 2009

This afternoon, the Joint Committee on Mental Health and Substance Abuse favorably reported S. 757, An Act Relative To The Coordination of Children’s Mental Health Care. This marks an important step in the progress of the legislation as the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Committee had primary jurisdiction over the bill.

For more information about S. 757 and for a summary of the June hearing on the bill, click here.

From here, the bill is expected to get a new number and move on to the Health Care Financing Committee.

Big thanks goes out to Senator Jen Flanagan, Representative Liz Malia and their staffs for all their hard work on the legislation.
