Child/Adolescent Partial Hospital Forums Scheduled
February 24, 2006

Working Together Partial Hospital Forums in March and April
The Department of Education and the Department of Public Welfare are holding forums across the commonwealth to inform school districts, providers, county and regional mental health staff, CASSP coordinators, and parents and advocates of proposed changes to the education of children and youth in partial hospitalization programs. These forums are being hosted by Intermediate Units

The purpose of these forums is to provide awareness of:

  • The commitment of the departments to improve education services to children in partial hospital programs via proposing changes to the Public School Code and new guidelines for department regulations of children’s partial hospital services,
  • To gather feedback and suggestions from the field through discussion groups on the positive and negative implications of these changes, and
  • To incorporate this feedback in the development of new policy for these programs.

Forum registration will be available online at www.pattan.net after March 7. Please click on 2006 Partial Hospitalization Forums in the What’s New Section on the home page.
