Wishes for the NH Mental Health System in 2012
See this interesting piece from the Concord Monitor. I was particularly struck by wish number 3:
A positive resolution to the Department of Justice finding. I hope that the commissioner of Human Services and the attorney general can put aside whatever offense they have taken at the Department of Justice finding that New Hampshire's mental health system is out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Olmstead decision. Our leaders need to face facts, facts that they have admitted themselves in their own report: Our mental health system is "broken." If we focus on developing evidence-based services that keep people out of expensive levels of care it will be a win for our clients and a financial win for the state.
