Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Saying that "understanding our mental health system is a challenge, and navigating it can at times prove frustrating for parents of children with mental health issues," the Boston Bar Association (BBA) today announced the publication of the third edition of the Parents' How-To Guide to Children's Mental Health Services in Massachusetts.

"This Guide reflects the legal talent, experience and public-spiritedness of our Health Law Section," said BBA President Lisa Goodheart. "Kudos to Michael Blau, the Guide's Editor-in-Chief, and also to our wonderful partner in this effort, Children's Hospital Boston."

This newest edition expands the Guide to address developmental and autism spectrum disorders, broadens the discussion of school-based and special education programs, and adds many new references to the Resource List at the end of the Guide.
