The Arc Kent County is co-hosting a local “Affinity Group” meeting to discuss the “Section 298 Initiative,” that is, the potential for big changes in how services are administered and provided by community mental health. Download the flyer and agenda here: affinity-kent-flyer-and-agenda
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is asking people with mental illness, emotional disorder, developmental or intellectual disability, or substance use disorder, and their family members, what supports and services they need or want.
This is a follow-up to Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley’s workgroup on the Section 298 boilerplate that was in the Governor Rick Snyder’s budget recommending privatizing behavioral health services. The boilerplate was changed, but the MDHHS needs to write a report to legislators about suggestions for improving the service system.
To collect information, a survey was developed. The MDHHS is asking concerned agencies to host group meetings to ask people the survey questions. The Affinity meeting is scheduled for:
