We are a large statewide network that advocates for policy, systems, and practice solutions to ensure all children in Massachusetts have access to resources to prevent, diagnose, and treat mental health issues in a timely, effective, and compassionate way. This will only happen through a shared responsibility among government and health care institutions working together to improve mental health care and access for children and youth.
The Children’s Mental Health Campaign (CMHC) Executive Committee consists of six highly reputable partner organizations: The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, Boston Children’s Hospital, the Parent/Professional Advocacy League, Health Care for All, Health Law Advocates, and the Massachusetts Association for Mental Health.
Our compassion, common sense, and conviction drive our work:
CMHC also engages and is informed by behavioral health stakeholders from across Massachusetts including families and youth. We host issue specific workgroups, educational presentations and public events where we welcome and encourage participation from all who are interested in children’s behavioral health.
