DHHS Unveils Mission Zero Plan to End ED Boarding

The NH Department of Health and Human Services held a Press Conference on Thursday, September 7th to discuss Mission Zero – a collaborative effort to eliminate hospital emergency department (ED) psychiatric boarding by 2025. CLM was pleased to be asked to host the event at our Derry site!

The work to address ED boarding reduction is already a top focus for NH and DHHS, as outlined in NH’s 10-Year Mental Health Plan. Mission Zero will add additional resources and attention to overcome this urgent, complex challenge in collaboration with community stakeholders including DHHS, the NH Hospital Association, NAMI-NH, and NH’s community mental health centers comprising the NH Community Behavioral Health Association.
