The Illinois Children’s Mental Health Plan Release Webinar
During Children’s Mental Health Week and Mental Health Month this year, we announced the release of our highly anticipated Children’s Mental Health Plan for Illinois where we shared our journey to develop the Plan and our goals for improving child and family mental health and wellness. The webinar featured remarks by ICMHP Interim Chair Dr. Sameer Vohra, ICMHP Director Amanda M. Walsh, and Dr. Dana Weiner, the newly announced Director of the Governor’s Office Children’s Behavioral Health Transformation Initiative. The webinar provided an overview of the Plan’s 5 goals.
Over the past 17 months, ICMHP has worked with stakeholders from across the state to develop a systematic, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary plan that would address the needs of children, families, and communities. Our priority from the start has been to use a whole child and family approach that prioritizes equity, diversity, and inclusion. In order for the State of Illinois to be best prepared to serve the mental health and wellness of all children, families, and communities we developed five goals, which were shared each day during Children’s Mental Health Week through our newsletter and social media accounts.
