New Hampshire officials have released a multi-year plan to overhaul the state’s mental health care delivery system that focuses on providing more housing for treatment and maintaining qualified staff.

A task force made up of Department of Health and Human Services staff and community behavioral health care providers came up with the suggestions over the past 18 months.

Roland Lamy of the New Hampshire Community Behavioral Health Association says the group is looking for improvements to housing access for people with behavioral health issues, along with improvements that will allow better and more effective care for people using local resources.

The suggestions will be presented to executive branch, legislative, judicial and local public officials for review and comment.
