CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Department of Health and Human Services has established a bureau to unify the delivery of mental health and substance disorder services to help children transitioning to adulthood.

The Bureau of Children’s Behavioral Health was created after the Legislature voted this year for a bill to coordinate and integrate children’s mental health services in a system of care. The goal is to transform a straining mental health and substance use delivery system and provide a greater focus on the services and supports of children.

The bureau will function within the department’s Division of Behavioral Health, which Commissioner Jeffrey Meyers established in March.
