New Hampshire is struggling with ongoing substance misuse, mental health, and child protection crises, all of which are drastically impacting our children. The lasting impacts of trauma cannot be overstated. As we continue to allow these crises to devastate our kids, we are putting them at further risk for developing behavioral health challenges.
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has released a proposed 10-Year Mental Health Plan for public hearing and written comment. For the first time, children are included in that plan. Ensuring that children have access to comprehensive home and community-based supports and services is a high priority to keep our kids healthy and well-supported.
