SB 291 (2019)


Directs the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to establish a psychiatric residential treatment facility at the Sununu Youth Services Center and to transfer juvenile patients from New Hampshire Hospital - the state mental hospital - to the new facility. The Senate amended the bill to instead direct DHHS to establish a new forensic psychiatric hospital, additional transitional beds for forensic patients or patients with complex behavioral health conditions, and a new acute inpatient psychiatric treatment facility for children.
