The State of Connecticut is in the process of developing a plan to improve children’s mental health services and systems across the state.

We are seeking input from parents, community members, mental health experts, and other interested people who can offer ideas and share their experiences related to children’s mental health issues. The completed plan will guide the State’s efforts to build a comprehensive and integrated behavioral health system that benefits all of Connecticut’s children.

Public Hearing

A progress report on the plan will be presented by DCF Commissioner Katz to the Appropriations and Children’s Committees at a public hearing on July 24 from 1:00-3:00pm.
