Rosie D.
Reforming the Mental Health System in Massachusetts

Training Materials

Home-based services for children can promote success in integrated community settings, while avoiding unnecessary and prolonged hospitalization or out-of-home placement.  These services can reduce symptoms and behaviors that impair educational progress, result in delinquency, CHINS, or juvenile justice proceedings, and otherwise created problems for children and their families. 


The training materials below describe these system changes, how to access newly-developed services and what appeal rights exist. In addition, they propose ways in which the Rosie D. system transformation initiative can support and complement the work of advocates in a variety of legal practice areas.
