IPUL's E-News for May 28, 2021
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
Idaho Behavioral Health Council seeks public comment on draft of new strategic plan
The Idaho Behavioral Health Council has released the first draft of its strategic plan to improve care for Idahoans with mental health and substance use disorders.

The council includes representatives from across Idaho’s three branches of government (the Executive Branch, Judicial Branch and the Idaho Legislature). Thirteen members are working collaboratively with local government, providers, community partners, and consumers of behavioral health services and their families to develop the statewide strategic plan — action-oriented recommendations that improve access to care and a timeline to accomplish them.

The public comment event is a chance to provide comments about the draft strategic plan, a copy of which is available here. A final version of the plan is expected to be published later in June.
