S.2774, An Act Investing in the Future of Our Health, contains meaningful approaches to address the persistent obstacles facing people with behavioral health needs in the Commonwealth. MAMH provides this testimony to underscore our support for S.2774 and also to respectfully propose certain modifications of language in the provisions on the health care workforce, the Quality Measurement Alignment Taskforce, and emergency department boarding. MAMH also suggests further deliberations on the provisions regarding regulation of certified peer workers and regarding scope of practice and licensure standards.
