Watch the recording from the December 6, 2023 webinar, What Can Western Massachusetts Do To Promote Youth Mental Health? Learn about three bills, currently before the MA Legislature, that could support youth mental health: An Act establishing a child and adolescent behavioral health implementation coordinating council (H.1979); An Act relative to MassHealth reimbursement to schools (S.794); and An Act relative to mental health education (H.497/S.240).
