2021 Legislative & Annual Report: Mental Health & IDD Services

<1 minute read

SB 2074 (Menéndez) would have allowed stakeholder input and the study of best practices across all settings for individuals with IDD experiencing mental illness by creating an advisory council composed of members across a variety of settings. This advisory council would have examined access to care and made recommendations to the legislature. The purpose of establishing this advisory council was to ensure that comprehensive, integrated MH/ IDD services are available and being provided in institutional, public, and private sectors in a person-centered way. This bill did not pass, but CTD will be back on this issue.
