Leading the charge

NACBH works to improve the availability and delivery of children’s behavioral health services across public systems created to meet their needs and private health coverage under federal parity law.

By advocating in Washington and supporting NACBH members’ local efforts, policy solutions are advanced to make child health, welfare, education, and juvenile justice programs more responsive to children and families who are dealing with behavioral health challenges.

– Gail Atkinson, Vice President, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health
