Public hearing set on 10-year mental health plan

December 2, 2018

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The public gets a chance to weigh in on a proposed 10-year plan for New Hampshire’s mental health system.

The draft plan released Nov. 20 envisions a regional hub-and-spoke model that provides access to a continuum of services, from prevention and early intervention to crisis and inpatient services. The approach is similar to how the state is combatting the opioid crisis — people would call a central portal that would connect them to regional hubs where their needs would be assessed and services arranged.

A public hearing on the plan is set for Monday night at the Department of Health and Human Services in Concord. Written comments also will accepted through Dec. 10.
