Gov. Kim Reynolds today signed into law House File 690, which establishes a children’s mental health system for the state. The legislation sets a state and regional governance framework and required core services for children. It codifies the Children’s Behavioral Health System State Board established by Reynolds through an executive order in 2018. Regional governance of the children’s system will be built upon the existing administrative and geographic structure of the Mental Health and Disability Services Regions. The regions will submit an implementation plan to the Department of Human Services by April 1, 2020, describing the implementation of core services.
