CONCORD – Today, SB 157, Senator Becky Whitley’s (D-Hopkinton) bill to extend a prior appropriation to DHHS for child behavioral health services, require that the New Hampshire 10-year mental health plan include a report on implementation of 2019, 44 (SB 14), relative to child welfare, and establish funded positions in the DHHS contracts and procurement unit, was voted Ought to Pass by the Senate Health and Human Services Committee in a vote of 4-0.

After the vote, prime sponsor Senator Becky Whitley (D-Hopkinton) issued the following statement:

Even one child waiting in an emergency room for care shows a failure of our system and a lack of leadership to protect our most vulnerable children. This weekend 51 children in mental health crisis were waiting in emergency rooms for care across the state. I thank my committee colleagues for their swift action and look forward to continued bipartisan support on this critical issue.”
