MassAIMH Policy Committee Mission

The mission of the MassAIMH Policy Committee is to keep track of and inform the Association of legislative and political issues affecting children and families. The committee promotes an understanding of the issues and needs of children and families through education efforts with lobbyists, advocates, legislators and other public policy makers. We develop and disseminate position papers on topics related to early childhood mental health for members and for the general public, including parents, caregivers, professionals, and policy makers.
