NYS Council Advocacy Featured in Jan. 23 Mental Health Weekly

January 25, 2023

The January 23 issue of Mental Health Weekly – a national newsletter for stakeholders and policy leaders from across the country – features a long article that focuses on the NYS Council’s work to compel the Executive to expand the CCBHC-Demonstration Program, as discussed in the Governor’s State of the State speech and the accompanying SOS Book.    I also had a chance to comment our longstanding workforce crisis and our desperate need for significant and permanent rate increases for core services including but not limited to the OASAS and OMH Outpatient Clinic rates, and Mayor Adam’s recent plan to address NYC homelessness and the mental health issues experienced by some New Yorkers who are living on the streets.
