About

We are Children's Behavioral Health    

The Collaborative is a multi-disciplinary initiative fixing barriers and improving behavioral health outcomes children, youth and their families in New Hampshire.  The Collaborative represents the largest ever collaboration of New Hampshire child and family organizations and agencies-more than 50-focused on mental health and substance use disorders for children, youth and families. The goal of the Collaborative was to develop and implement a plan that would transform the current delivery system.   

In March 2013, the Collaborative released the NH Children’s Behavioral Health Plan. We believe that efforts to improve care must be done together, across the public and private sectors. The future prosperity of New Hampshire depends on our ability to foster the health and well-being of the next generation of citizens.  The social and emotional health of children in our state is fundamental to their overall health.
