NH lawmakers are currently weighing the state budget. Show up to ask them to fund an integrated and comprehensive system of care that includes statewide access to mobile crisis services!
Mobile Crisis Services are evidence-based, cost-effective supports that give New Hampshire children what they need, when they need it.
This week, as a member of the Juvenile Reform Project, a coalition of the Collaborative, New Hampshire Legal Assistance, ACLU of New Hampshire, Disability Rights Center - NH, and Waypoint, we released Keeping Kids in School: The Urgent Need for Reform of School Discipline in NH.
