The loss of Rob Restuccia is immeasurable and the impact of his life-long work stretches far beyond Massachusetts.
Long before there was a Children’s Mental Health Campaign, Rob gave voice to children and families seeking to access quality health and mental health services. As Executive Director of Health Care For All, Rob established the Children's Health Access Coalition leading the call for the establishment of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and the Children’s Medical Security Plan as well as a strong Medicaid Program that addresses the needs of kids.
Rob showed us the power of collaboration and partnership to enrich and achieve an advocacy platform that stands for the most vulnerable among us. Most important, he challenged all of us to aim higher.
The Children's Mental Health Campaign will miss his leadership, passion and strength and commits to honoring his life by continuing his work.
