HEALTHY MINDS, HEALTHY KIDS CAMPAIGN
The Healthy Minds, Healthy Kids Campaign, in which the NYS Council is a steering committee member, is advocating for its’ new rate reform proposal for children’s BH services (linked here). Earlier this year, a workgroup met to identify the needs of the system of care and a data analysis and proposal were prepared.
The Campaign has an important focus – the experiences of a coalition of young people who have had lived experience in the mental health system, or know someone who has. The Campaign tries to center on the wisdom of young people as it continues to elevate the needs of the state’s mental health and substance use disorder systems of care. The NYS Council is proud and honored to be a part of this amazing ongoing effort.
