2022 MLC Health & Human Services Committee Meeting

July

10-12

In conjunction with the 76th Annual Meeting of the Midwestern Legislative Conference (MLC), the MLC Health & Human Services Committee will hold its 2022 Meeting on Sunday, July 10, in Wichita, Kansas. In addition to traditional committee business, this meeting will also include a presentation on how Kansas’ “Mental Health Intervention Team Pilot Program” is working on-the-ground in Wichita’s public school system.

The committee will also be co-hosting (with the MLC Criminal Justice & Public Safety Committee) a general attendance session on Tuesday, July 12, examining the use of mental health courts as a method of diverting people with mental illnesses from the corrections system to, instead, connecting them with the services and supports they need for treatment.
