From Leigh Simons Youmans, Senior Director, Healthcare Policy

“MHA and our members are incredibly grateful that the Attorney General has chosen to use this funding to tackle behavioral health boarding in Massachusetts.

“This is exactly the type of investment that will help connect patients with the resources they need while they are in crisis and help relieve pressure from hospitals during a tremendously fragile time. We’ve often said that addressing the boarding crisis will take a partnership among everyone involved with our healthcare system. The legislature, Baker Administration, and Attorney General have all stepped up when it was needed the most.”
