In early 2015, the Children's Mental Health Campaign (CMHC) launched a multi-year project to gather data to define clearly the scope of issues that lead to Emergency Department (ED) boarding and to use that data to inform a set of solutions to the problem.
Based on this project, the Children’s Mental Health Campaign (CMHC) began to study one solution: behavioral health urgent care for children. This new multi-year study was led by the Massachusetts Association for Mental Health. Click here to learn more about the Pediatric Behavioral Health Urgent Care Project.
