Advocates and Legislators Challenge the Secretary: Capacity, Outcomes, and Inclusion important to System Improvement

This week’s legislative meeting addressing the new Strategic Plan for Improving Behavioral Health Services was a lively one, with so many important issues brought up by legislators and advocates! We are moving toward a shared platform of seeking an appropriately staffed, user and family-informed system that focuses its dollars on outcomes in people’s lives! There was genuine concern from legislators who spoke about family members whose experiences had become their own experiences! And as advocates shared about the importance of Community Inclusion (recent presentation in Raleigh) becoming a characteristic of an effective system, legislators nodded support. THANK YOU to all who have been writing to or reaching out to their legislators, and THANK YOU to those advocates who spoke during Public Comment time!
