The Policy Workgroup works to develop and implement the strategic policy priorities of the Collaborative based on the CBHC plan. The Policy Workgroup engages diverse stakeholders to identify, influence and implement policies and practice that will transform the way we care for New Hampshire youth with complex behavioral health challenges and their families.
