Draft BHRS and STAP Bulletins for Review and Comment
October 24, 2013

The Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) Children’s Bureau has conducted work groups to discuss clinical and managed care practice improvement, consumer, and operational concerns regarding Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) and Summer Therapeutic Activities Programs (STAP). As one element of this process, OMHSAS has developed draft bulletins for BHRS and STAP. The BHRS bulletin has been revised to accommodate many of the concerns and comments provided by members of the BHRS Work Group and others over the past several months. The STAP bulletin revisions are minimal, done to be consistent with the BHRS bulletin. OMHSAS is requesting review, comments, and suggestions on these drafts.  Please submit your comments and changes to Cristal Fowler by the close of business November 15.
