BHRS Draft Bulletin Input
June 20, 2014

A draft of the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) bulletin, Clarification of Policies Regarding the Authorization and Delivery of Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS), is being reviewed by the OMHSAS BHRS Work Group. The first draft of this bulletin was released in 2013. The current draft will be under discussion through the next several weeks. OMHSAS has not set a date for a final version to be issued and is inviting review and input from the community . RCPA members are invited to review this draft document and send comments and recommendations to Connell O’Brien. In addition to the BHRS Work Group there is an OMHSAS family and advocate group working to develop a “Family Guide to BHRS” and a documentation work group exploring improved models for Therapeutic Support Staff documentation of observation, intervention, and progress notes.
