BHRS History and Bulletin References
June 18, 2013

Members of the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) work group continue to meet to discuss the appropriate and optimal use of BHRS in community-based treatment and support systems. Part of the discussion has focused on the clinical and statutory origins of BHRS and the history of traditional and non-traditional services that range from Mobile Therapy and Behavior Specialist Consultant services to Therapeutic Staff Support and Summer Therapeutic Activity Programs. To support the efforts of the work group, providers, and managed care organizations, OMHSAS has compiled documents reflecting the history of BHRS and listing key Department of Public Welfare bulletins.  These documents are available from the links.
