CONCORD—Today the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed SB 14-FN, to establish a statewide children’s mobile crisis response in alignment with the DCYF Adequacy and Enhancement Assessment, the federal The Family First Prevention Services Act, and the 10 Year Mental Health Plan. SB 14 passed the Senate unanimously in March.

 

Prime sponsor Senator Dan Feltes (D-Concord) released the following statement after the vote:

 

“It’s time to finally implement a comprehensive children’s system of care to prevent the mistreatment of children and advance children’s mental health. Senate Bill 14 is a cost-effective, proactive proposal that will address the critical needs of our children in a timely manner, thereby reducing significant health, special education, hospital, and child protection costs down the road. I applaud today’s strong bipartisan House vote in support of SB 14-FN and encourage Governor Sununu signing this important initiative.”
