Community Healthlink is committed to promoting, restoring, and maintaining the physical health, mental health and dignity of adults, children and families in Central Massachusetts who are experiencing mental illness, addiction or homelessness.  Community Healthlink’s services are grounded in the principles of recovery and the belief that every person has the right to choose his or her own recovery path. Community Healthlink uses evidence-based practices and relevant state-of-the-art research aimed at improving the lives of our consumers.

CHL has been asked to host 4 family voice forums over the next year in order to hear from the families we serve, specifically for families who are currently or have been involved in CBHI (Child Behavioral Health Initiative) services. Family Voice Forums are an opportunity to hear from caregivers and young adults regarding their experience with the behavioral health system. Their input provides a critical understanding to the areas of strength and need within the service delivery system. Older youth and caregivers who have had experiences with any of the CBHI services are encouraged to participate. The feedback and themes generated from these meetings will be shared with MassHealth and other stakeholders.

Volunteer to Become a Special Education Surrogate Parent

Are you interested in supporting students in your community?

You can help by volunteering to become a Special Education Surrogate Parent (SESP) for a student in state care that requires special education supports and whose parents are unknown or unavailable. These children depend on SESPs to protect their legal right to a free and appropriate education.

SESPs serve as appointed decision makers that have the legal authority of a parent or legal guardian to attend and participate in special education team meetings, approve or reject Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and if necessary, file complains or appeals. On average, the time commitment is only 30-40 hours a year.

RTSC hosts FREE Orientation Trainings throughout the state where you will learn about the role of an SESP, how traumatic experiences can impact learning and how to incorporate the appropriate supports into the IEP. Register to attend this training or visit our website at www.fcsn.org/rtsc/ to view our current training schedule for other opportunities.  

Registration is required.

You can register online at http://fcsn.org/rtsc/orientations/ or contact Danielle Hardin at dhardin@fcsn.org or 617-399-8342. (PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR CONTACT PHONE NUMBER.)

    Contact: Mandi Robinson   508-373-7998   mrobinson@communityhealthlink.org
   

CHL is an non-profit organization located in central Massachusetts. Community Healthlink is committed to promoting, restoring, and maintaining the physical health, mental health and dignity of adults, children and families in Central Massachusetts who are experiencing mental illness, addiction or homelessness.  Community Healthlink’s services are grounded in the principles of recovery and the belief that every person has the right to choose his or her own recovery path. Community Healthlink uses evidence-based practices and relevant state-of-the-art research aimed at improving the lives of our consumers.

CHL has been asked to host 4 family voice forums over the next year in order to hear from the families we serve, specifically for families who are currently or have been involved in CBHI (Child Behavioral Health Initiative) services. Family Voice Forums are an opportunity to hear from caregivers and young adults regarding their experience with the behavioral health system. Their input provides a critical understanding to the areas of strength and need within the service delivery system. Older youth and caregivers who have had experiences with any of the CBHI services are encouraged to participate. The feedback and themes generated from these meetings will be shared with MassHealth and other stakeholders.
