The New Hampshire Senate has approved a bill aimed at strengthening the state’s comprehensive system of care for children with mental health problems.
The state in recent years has been moving toward a system that emphasizes family-driven, community-based services coordinated across child protection, juvenile justice and other systems. The Senate on Thursday passed a follow-up bill, the centerpiece of which is the creation of mobile crisis teams for children within an hour’s reach statewide.
