Beginning in October, CSAs across the state will host Family Voice Forums. These meetings are an opportunity to hear from caregivers of younger children and young adults regarding their experiences with the MassHealth children’s behavioral healthcare system. Their input provides a critical understanding to the areas of strength and need within the service delivery model. While the CSAs have been asked to coordinate these meetings, participation is open to caregivers who have had experiences with any of the CBHI services.
WHO: Caregivers of younger children and/or youth (16+) who have had experience with ICC, FS&T, IHT, IHBS, TM, OP, and/or MCI. Please note that these meetings will be facilitated by members of the Statewide Wraparound Coaching Team and attendance is for families/youth only.
WHAT: Two Family Voice Forums will be offered in your area between October and June.
WHEN: Be on the lookout for information from your local CSA regarding time and place. Any assistance you can offer to help connect families either currently or previously enrolled in your services would be very helpful.
If you have questions about the meetings in your area, please contact your local CSA.
